I would think you at least, Gunnar, would cut this offensively demeaning
subject line.  Apparently my reversing it has made no impression.

Simone de Beauvoir was hardly definable as "Sarte's woman."

"Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read
them: but as a rule the purchase of books is mistaken for the
appropriation of their contents."
