ACTUALLY, Carol, I am not sure the ENTIRE LSI is up and runninɡ and fully
accessible. For 4 or so of the Volumes it is great, you can even download
individual pages as pdfs... for some of the volumes you get the index okay,
but when you try to see the pages (or download a pdf), you get nothing.

NEVERTHELESS -- and hoping eventually the whole thing is accessible -- what
you CAN now get acces to is GREAT! (and it has been up for some time... at
least 6 months or more)

"Too often we honor swagger and bluster and wielders of force; too often we
excuse those who are willing to build their own lives on the shattered
dreams of others. ... [T]here is another kind of violence, slower but just
as deadly destructive as the shot or the bomb in the night. This is the
violence of institutions; indifference and inaction and slow decay." (Bobby
Kennedy, 5 April 1968)
