Ruby: Thanks for confirming my remarks. Actually, my "discovery" of the
power of the net to generate ideas was probably obvious, even hilarious, to
most people on the list, yourself included. Put it down to the newbie in me
that I hadn't fully appreciated it before.

I only wish that my comment in the "Aduncts..." thread that budgets be
considered critical cultural documents had taken off in the same way that
"fascinatin rhythm" did.

BTW, with something like 800 pair of eyes (figuratively, as well as
literally, speaking) on this list, Anthro-L could hardly do otherwise than
assign credit accurately where credit is due. Lynn's thread, "a few thoughts
on dance and drill," has indeed woven itself into a fine-looking fabric of
many ideas and authors.
