Another item for the bucket list, probably a completely unexpected one. Thanks for posting the clue, Kevin!

I feel a lot of things are ruined by the Internet; seems like even crossword puzzles. I wonder how many people Googled this answer to solve it, and I also wonder how many people Googled VT based on curiosity, after solving it.

Here's a blog with commentary (I'm dumbfounded, that's some devotion!) and here's the whole thing. Thanks to Erik for hunting them down, otherwise I was going to have to resort to going to the library and hoping they still have papers available on microfilm. I kinda doubt they do...ah, the good old days of retrieving articles.

How cool! (I was going to say "How cool is that?", but then I realized I'd be asking a question that really needs no answer....) :D
