Working Title: Scholars Before Researchers – Not a Precis, yet…

As you scroll down you might notice that the precis is missing….  This is because, well, because it is missing….  This morning I have decided to put my “works in progress” into this blog.

This is also an open invitation for you to write a precis on this article.  It is a rather interesting article.  The title of this one caught my eye.  A quick scan confirmed and my curiosity was appeased.  This is why this one is here.  A precis will follow — I just don’t know quite when.
