    first, for Tony Cappiello and anyone else who is interested, I have copies
    of the PDFs for the 1995 Bowditch.  it is 59 files, about 25MB.  probably
    best if you can FTP it from me.

    completely agree on this!  can not over emphasize this.

    and worse!!  no derivative works, if Disney and the large copyright holders
    continue have their way.  imagine a world where everything you create
    indebts you to someone for "copyright".  given that Disney's empire is
    created from copyright-expired and derivative works, the hypocracy is too
    much for me.
    Long live USGPO "free" text!!
