I had precisely this thought when I was typing the very same phrase while writing this story Wednesday morning. I thought I should try for some fresher way of saying this. Then I thought:
1. It's 6 a.m.
2. I have been working for 20 hours.
3. It's the Fourth of July.
4. I promised the printer the paper would be shipped to Bozeman by 7:30 a.m.
5. If I stay with the code, everyone will know what I am talking about. If I break new ground, I will have to explain what I mean.
6. Who am I to stand in the way of history?
