Re: orion-list Philo

Dear Stephen Goranson,

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on "Every Good Man is Free".  I will 
certainly let the list know where my article will appear when the time comes. 
 If you would care to informally take part in the peer review process, 
perhaps you could be more specific as to the objections you perceive, i.e. 
amplify your comment that "time and space considerations, among other things, 
exclude your proposal" (privately if you prefer).  In the meantime, I will 
try to track down the bibliographic references you have already cited - the 
holidays have somewhat hampered my efforts there.  
    I followed you as far as Pliny, but you lost me on Shakespeare and 
Charlie Brown.  I think the motive for departing the cities is indicated by 
Philo's pregnant reference to "turmoils and disturbances innumerable" in even 
the best of cities (Contemplative Life 19), which suggests to the astute 
reader the question, to what disturbances does Philo refer or have in mind?
    I'm sorry to hear about your illness.   I hope it's not serious.
