Also: mensch.

I'll have to point my dad to NBIH; I do very little history reading, but he'd probably love the project.

When I'm no longer at work, I am going to have to explore this extensively.

So, one of the authors there is one the publisher I work for published. Bowers, the Priestley book on Unitarianism. Now I can justify my Mefi reading at work as work. Cool.
