But you don't tell us a thing about the allegedly great curricula
preceding 195_. That's your repeated crime on this list and what
makes all your additional and past posts worthless.

It's as if you keep claiming to know some great truth but refuse to
even vaguely demonstrate the slightest thing about it. That leads me
to the conclusion that your emperor has no clothes. Clearly, Kirby
agrees. Lou would, too, as would Victor. And anyone who has suffered
for a decade or so awaiting the Godot of your being specific. Just
once. Not a table of contents. Not a list of topics. Not a pointer to
an old post of yours that won't be any more specific or useful than
all your others.


I don't need to see that you hate every book since 195_. That's
patently obvious. What I need to see is: A) what's good about the old
books; B) what's bad in the new ones by comparison to the old; and C)
above all, specific examples. SPECIFIC EXAMPLES, DOM. If you don't
provide any, and in a decade or so, you never have, then what
freaking good are you to anyone?
