Thanks for the tip to the archives about this program(me).

Things are not great here, either. After eight years on the Internet,
About.com still seem to be alive, which in itself seems to be a bit of a
miracle. We (using the collective "we", I'm just along for the ride)
continue to change course where it seems warranted, which I think is how
we stay afloat, but things have definitely gone south since April 2000
(pardon the extended sailing metaphor, I've seen too many movies
lately). To be honest, I'm constantly surprised that About continues to
support my clearly non-commercial antics at all. Lucky me! But, thanks

Tell the truth, I figured the spelling of 'program' would be a dead
giveaway. A better question might be, if I may be so bold, "to what pond
do you refer, you irritating American git?"

American archaeology is ready to be a mature science, one that accepts
the primacy of its empirical data--for these can outlast theories--and
the political and human ramifications of its actions, as it reflectively
constructs and compares interpretations. Tolerence for ambiguity is as
essential as the Marshalltown trowel. -- Alice Beck Kehoe
