I guess Naomi will have to find other ways to practice forbearance (kṣānti) as I still haven't met anyone so lacking taste-buds as to criticize her culinary talents. Indeed, there is nothing like having a piece of "Indo-European language family tree" on the steps of the Clarendon building.
It is hoped that this scholarly zeitschrift will thrive... sarvasattvānāṃ hitāya sarvasattvānāṃ sukhāya. Maṅgalam.
