Nancy -- Two points. First, "going back to the roots" of every good idea is essential. It reduces (but does not eliminate) the erosion and corrosion of the idea over time that results from shifts in perspective and political pressures. It also helps us see the degree and nature of how our perspectives have changed over time. The result is that the original idea is preserved for a while longer into the future, and the idea triggers fresh insights as we compare "as it was" to "as it is." Second, I would be disappointed if the SOF editorial decision was to dodge the issue by omitting the reference. I have come to expect and value Krista's "tactful honesty" as a hallmark of the entire SOF effort. Remaining silent upon discovering such a distortion only perpetuates it.
