      Michael,
      Laziness is of old date. Recall Pope's complaint in the _Dunciad_:
      "How index-learning turns no student pale,/ Yet holds the eel of
      science by the tail." I suppose "index-learning" learning was the
      answer of a 17th and 18th Century student to being actually required
      to read a book. (Ahem!)
