1. That about nails it. This reminds me of Plato's notion of Anemnisis.
He claimed that if you had a fragment of a picture, situation, phenomena, you could logically infer the remainder of the pattern (the whole picture) through logical analysis. I've never really understood this concept (and I'm sure others after Plato have outlined it). But now I do. The available data, hard to get and difficult to understand, is the basis for this analysis. This work is compelling. I think you should get the Nobel Prize for this!!! Maybe you will if we get a Democratic Congress in 2006 or a Democratic President in 2008, one with a real sense of intellectual honesty and more importantly curiosity. I recall one of your pre-election posts when you said that Kerry had to really nail it in order for the 'believable' vote fixing schemes to be ineffective. Were you ever right. You told us so! Thank you for this work.
