      Laurie,

      As long as it leads to the sources, I agree. But the current trend to use
      poorly constructed citations (one footnote for several paragraphs, including
      several sources) really makes it tough to employ this method with any
      confidence.

      For example, rather than cite all the primary
      sources again, you can cite 'For a closer examination of the action
      at Reed's Bridge, see ...'. This is perfectly acceptable as it leads
      to the sources, which is the whole point.

      Best,

      Laurie Schiller
