Every link on this page leads to another page on this CD, or to a web page on the internet. Click the link to jump to its destination. Caveat: Web pages may cease to exist without warning. In many cases, I saved their contents in my notes. If you’re curious, write and ask me ... or for instant results, “Google” the artist’s name as I did.

Researching this book on the internet was a heady adventure. Just like Hemingway's cats, one web page link leads to another. I wound up incidentally reading up on such diverse subjects as the 1527 Sack of Rome, the 17th-century Machine of Marly, and the 2002 draping of Picasso's Guernica at the United Nations just to kill photo opportunities like the one that inspired this book. I learned to my liberal chagrin that this blatant act of censorship may in fact be a myth. So learning is good; it helps us discover whether our convictions are worth holding so fiercely.
