    Then perhaps BEGIN should be caled something else... maybe SEQUENCE or
    SEQUENTIALLY... I thought it got its name from Algol 60 and therefore
    should be as much like Algol 60's begin blocks as possible...

This is one reason why I objected to this name at Brandeis.  But it is
clearly too late to change it now.

    don't anyone messages that I send on April 1 seriously.

I guess the joke's on me... I didn't catch that one (although your
other message was pretty obvious).
