"Possible discriminatory effects on non-speakers of Welsh are
justified as acceptable _collateral_."

Taken from the abstract of a talk to be given at the SOAS, London.
Presumably, the author vetted his abstract before e-mailing it around
the world and saw nothing wrong.

Or, he may simply have fucked up.


All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
