A couple of brief notes: I’ve changed the way comments work slightly – old posts are now open to comments instead of being closed after 2 weeks. I can’t find a way to let registered users comment on closed posts, so that’s how it will be.

Quoth the New York Times of 3/28/1860: Mr. DARWIN’s mode of accounting for the diversity of the specific forms of organic life, differs alike from the doctrine of LAMARCK, (who made transmutation to depend mainly upon the efforts of the animal,) and from the hypothesis of the author of the Vestiges (who found the solution of the problem in the idea of consecutive development.) It differs also, let us say, in having for its basis some undeniable facts. Too, as I have oft lamented to Sarah, we have lost a certain flair for naming seen in days of yore, and please do persue that comment thread for more on the subject, […]
