to those who might be 'wondering', i'll reiterate that, since _Science
News_ only publishes reports on what's been published elsewhere, and since
none of my work has been published, it's =impossible= for me to gain
anything from 'celebrating' the work that _Science News_ does (except that,
since i read _Science News_, if more folks get their work into its pages,
i'll have ready access to their work, which'd be something that i'd 'gain',
but so would everyone else who reads _Science News_).

my general approach is to 'celebrate' good Work whenever and wherever i
encounter it, just because good Work is worth 'celebrating'.

guess i'm "ab-'normal'" in this way, but i see such as being coupled to
Obligation with respect to 'criticism'.
