Subject: (urth) an observation

A friend of mine who doesn't subscribe to Urth or Whorl 
made the following remarks, which I thought interesting,
and urged him to post.  He declined, but told me that I 
might do so.

Please forgive me for posting this to both lists; but it con-
cerns the topics of both, and so I'm doing it in case there's 
anyone out there who subscribes to only one.
