Given your location and ethnicity, let
me apologize for the title at once.

It is, however, the first book that
came up giving an account similar to
that which I refer above. See page 21.

http://books.google.com/books?id=Xa8CNCyohBQC&pg=PA21&lpg=PA21&dq=%22emile+borel%22+%22axiom+of+choice%22&source=bl&ots=48RmezpyDb&sig=4hAXQkKzbeCG9JTF0S5fvIWpPXs&hl=en&sa=X&ei=-LNGUfeFOKGA2AWx_oCgCA&ved=0CFQQ6AEwCA#v=onepage&q=%22emile%20borel%22%20%22axiom%20of%20choice%22&f=false


It is an odd thing. What one purports is not necessarily
what one does.

In my social class that reads in a reverse direction:

"Actions speak louder than words"

I wish only that my current knowledge base could
provide the details -- preferably from original
sources. Sadly, I cannot.
