Thanks for pointing this out. I like the discussion of "skepticism about SDS's" on page 3-156 of my desk copy as well; particularly the reminder that SDS's, like laws, are heavily influenced by lawyers and Otto von Bismarck's adage about legislation and sausage can apply to SDS's as well...

Endorsement of the book intended. ;)
