Kent, I really enjoyed your non-review review of the Camfield essay
collection. One sentence resurrected a question I used to have. In the MT
Encyclopedia, my fellow North Texas alumni David Barrow scribed his entry on
"orality," a term, best I know, which only appeared in one other
source--David's dissertation from which the article was culled. Until Kent
recalled the term, I'd forgotten it. Just in case I'm out of touch, did that
concept disappear utterly or has it a life in other venues I'm unaware of? I
ask this purely out of envy--I'd hate to think my old classmate coined
something memorable and useful and I merely authored a forgotten ditty on

Wes Britton, who now realizes he needs to get back in the reviewing game for
the joy of pillaring books without the expense of paying for them.
