No CV needed.

I understand; an, ahem, pay attention now, academic...that is
merely...well, academic.  No chiding neccessary.  The )(&) and
circumstance of the most recent post will suffice.

  me to recommend my chapter on Traditional Chinese Religion in Ray

  Of course people quarrel and quibble about their gods, ghosts and
  ancestors. "Mine is better than yours" is basic human nature. Still,
  only a fool mistakes the local equivalent of a high-school rivalry
  for a categorical imperative.
