    great quorums in history:

    The College of Agriculture, University of Kentucky. The discussion regards clear cutting the infinite returns on a fine forest:

    Your need to leave the meeting is perfectly understandable to me, and yet I am sorry, not least because the meeting got better and more cordial the longer it went on. Your people responded to the questioners with increasing, and finally with great, generosity. The questioners, for the most part, diverted any hard feelings to their own ulcers and returned kindness for kindness.

    I was sure that this would lead to a transcript of remarks from said meeting in which the foulest language imaginable would proceed as a vehement display of counterpoint, in the grand tradition of exceptional understatement. But no, the hits come much harder than all that.

    Were I but to end my adolescence of punctuations, to become a man of letters.
