Someone on this list seems to doubt my ability to transcribe (copy and 
paste actually) a rather simple address for a site on which the 
following is found:

> Two consecutive sentences from HARPER'S WEEKLY REVIEW (June 15, 2004)
> http://www.harpers.org/WeeklyReview2004-06-15.html
>       An astronomer in Virginia reconstructed
>       the sound of the Big Bang and discovered
>       that it sounded at first like a "majestic"
>       major third chord and then changed to a
>       "sadder" minor third. Ray Charles died.

This poster persists in asserting that those sentences are not found 
there. ("It's Harper's page, but not that quote.")

I have checked yet again.  The address is correct.

Those who continue to have difficulty finding the quotation are 
directed to focus their attention on the antepenultimate and 
penultimate sentences in the weekly review found at that site.
