MSN Photos is the easiest way to share and print your photos:
- At our Moderator's invitation, I have uploaded a revised Word version
of the Wilhelmsen article to the group's Files area. Having had a bit
of experience with the sometimes over-zealous and rigid formatting to
which some scanning software defaults, I've stripped out most of what
made the document difficult to alter for one's own preferences.
Although I did not go over it carefully, I did correct some of the
more obvious typos (and brainos -- "prepositional" appears twice, so
was unlikely merely to have been missed).
Two notes: First, we, er, "Information Technology Professionals"
*always* work on a copy, rather than the original file. Nevertheless,
I, ahem, no longer have the original, so don't know how large a file
it was. At 31k, it is probably larger than the original, since the
<mtheo> household is a TRFZ(*), and I have embedded a font file
within the doc to keep it TRF. Still, at 1/100 the size of the PDF
it's probably not too extreme a bloat.
Second, all this may be lavishing far too much loving care on the
actual review. Despite EV's deflecting "Let it go" reported by
Niemeyer (cf. Frank M's note that kicked off the discussion many many
messages ago), I well remember thinking when the review came out that
it was one of the most embarrassing public tantrums I'd ever seen.
Looking at it again after all these years, I think I now recognize
some of the same shock & indignation I've often beheld when readers
-- even devoted & enthusiastic readers -- of Voegelin's work
encounter the suggestion that taking his work seriously might
actually require them to give up the mass of easy knee-jerk liberal
-- or "conservative" -- assumptions that suffuse what they have to
say. It's a curious phenomenon. Does this square with anyone else's
impression of the piece, or am I fresh out, as I so often am, of that
essential ingredient, whack?
