IDEAS, RANTS, AND RANDOM MUSINGS


These are works not in progress. (Some are conference papers I see no point in or hope of publishing; some are mere queries.) I invite you to react to them and, since I have more ideas than time, please steal these and complete them.  Just let me know when you take over command of one, so I won't accidentally duplicate your work.  (And of course it would be nice if you gave me appropriate credit.)
