Another sort of payment.

Okay, so I haven't been paid, let alone become rich, from writing these columns. It is, however, quite fair to say that I received my MA as a rather direct result of them. The entire thesis is a part of these pages (I don't have to worry about linking to it - there's very little danger than anyone is really going to read it), but more important, it grew out of these columns. If I was going to stop writing them (that's a troublingly recurring theme of this column for some reason) receiving my degree would have been a good time to do so, in what might be considered a sort of take the money and run manner.
