have alternating signs. Some values are:

E0 = 1

Nor, for that matter, is it a Dutch infinitive. _Bon_ is *not* Slovak for "ass". _Doi_ is *not* Polish for "two" -- to the extent that it is a Polish word *at all*, it is the third person singular conjugation in the present tense of the VERb _doić_, meaning "to milk (a cow)". Mellon Grant recipients are *not* obliged to collect their grant checks in person at the Mellon Bank in Manhattan -- in fact, many recipients use such modern conveniences as direct deposit, branch banks, or the U. S. Postal Service! Coleridge did *not* write Wordsworth's poem "The idiot boy", _pace_ the delusions (and the endless moronic repetitive posts) of h.l.a.s.'s own esteemed Idiot Boy. The watt is *not* a unit of energy. The expected value of a random variable is *not* the same thing as its sample mean. The number 19 is *not* remarkable as both the sum of two consecutive integers and the difference of their squares. _Don Quixote_ was *not* written in English. Mary Wollstonecraft was *not* born on May 26, although h.l.a.s.'s Idiot Boy posted this idiocy oVER and oVER and oVER. Prince Albert was not born on May 26 either, although h.l.a.s.'s Idiot Boy posted this idiocy oVER and oVER and oVER as well!

Carr?
A bed quilt & a handmade pajama top.
<<Are you sure that the pajama top is not a cleVERly disguised straitjacket, Art?
Dr. HAPIrstein: "Come with us quietly, Art. Don't argue or make a scene.
Because if you say anything more about Masons or Masoncraft,
we're gonna be forced to take you to a mental hospital.
You don't want that, do you?"
<<I hope that whateVER gifts you received were to your liking,
Art, and that your birthday was happy.>>
Much appreciated, Dave.
<<I just hope that advancing age doesn't worsen your already alarming senility.>>
That's why I've taken up the hobby of
figuring out who wrote Shakespeare.
<<But that will *exacerbate* your condition, Art! It will put you in
contact with all sorts of other demented cranks who believe all manner
of idiotic crap!>>
You mean how I met you?
We've neVER met, Art, _pace_ your delusions to the contrary.

The other demented cranks to whom I alluded are the ones that you have *already* acknowledged keeping company with, along with all those whom you met at the Oxfordian nutfest in Baltimore, etc.
(Carolyn & I also work together on the Post Sunday Crossword.)
<<I hope that you're better at crosswords than you are at anagrams,
acrostics, equidistant letter sequences, etc., Art, or that you get a
*lot* of help and guidance from St. Carolyn.>>
We make a good crossword team
I'm sure that it's a team effort: St. Carolyn furnishes the literacy in English, the ability to count, etc.
and generally finish about 2/3's of them.
Well done, Art!
<<Personally, I prefer the New York Times crossword, although I rarely
bother with Sunday's puzzle; the Thursday puzzle is often the most
interesting one of the week.>>
You can't handle the Sunday puzzle!
I didn't say that, Art. I just don't particularly enjoy the Sunday puzzle, and don't want to spend the time required, particularly when I could be skiing on the weekend instead. The Thursday puzzles are generally the most interesting ones, since they have themes that must be divined by various means.
Who's gonna do it? You? You, Professor Webb? I have a greater
responsibility than you can possibly fathom.
You mean that your handlers have a greater responsibility than I can fathom, Art? I don't doubt it -- it must be demanding indeed to insure that all surfaces that you might encounter are suitably padded.
You have the luxury of
knowing things I don't know.
Virtually *anyone* enjoys that luxury, Art! Indeed, anyone literate who can read the Cyrillic alphabet knows that _тæрин_ is not a Russian word. Similarly, anyone who has studied high school-level physics knows that the watt it not a unit of energy. Anyone familiar with middle school-level introductory algebra can work out which integers are both the sum of two consecutive integers and the difference of their squares. And even most grade school students know that a man traveling from New Haven to New York City would not board a nonstop flight from Boston to Los Angeles.
