Honest, guys&dolls, it's Alta Vista and nothing but, as far as the web pages are concerned. It helps to be able to skim a page quickly so I can hit the Next link. The quotations are embedded in my cortex, but I usually use Alta Vista here too, in order to "straighten" the wording. On occasion, I keep my own wording, as in these favorites: We call nothing profound that is not wittily expressed. -- Northrop Frye, improved by John Cowan "Take a letter: To Humadinger, Humadinger, Humadinger, Humadinger, and Humadinger?"
