Thanks for the link David, I will look at it,

Apparently I missed the mark with Holmstedt. This is very easy to do.
Reminds me of long discussions over dinner with a J.Derrida disciple, who
keeps telling me "you don't understand, you don't understand." When it comes
to minimalism the first thing I am willing to admit is I don't understand.

Meanwhile I am waiting for my library to fetch (InteLibLoan) the following:

Looks like a good read, No?
