      Hilbert writes to Todd and asks:

      > Do you suppose there is any truth
      > to the old saying.... If you sleep
      > with a dog that has fleas, you will
      > get fleas from the dog?

      > Is either one of you two a dog with fleas?

      I can only answer for myself.

      I am not a dog.

      I don't have fleas.

      I guess, according to Hilbert, that means my sleeping companions must be
      in pretty good shape as well.

      Major premise of Hilbert's argument:

      > If Robert slept with a dog with fleas,
      > then Robert would have fleas.

      Minor premise of Hilbert's argument:

      > Robert doesn't have fleas.

      Conclusion of Hilbert's argument:

      > Robert has not slept with a dog with fleas.
