Abstract: Dr Xuereb's invitation to participate at this morning's seminar arrived on my desk at a particularly harrowing time, for I was being harassed to deliver an editorial article which I had previously promised in a moment of weakness. To add to it all, the day had dawned hot and humid and my battered fan was doing little to improve the situation. I was in need of urgent references in order to deliver what was expected of me. As had happened frequently in the past, a significant number was not available in our library. I must confess that my initial reaction was to jot down the word 'inadequate' next to the proposed title of my talk, garnish it with a couple of expletives and return the invitation. Having scribbled the word down I soon felt that such a comment, left unqualified, would be grossly unfair on my part. I therefore wrote back accepting Dr Xuereb's invitation and here I am this morning.
