Value of DJ Blurbs

Dogeared member Bob Snare recently sent me OCR scans he had done of 
over 70 (!) ML DJ blurbs, nearly doubling the number I already had.

Preparing this terrific hoard for Dogeared gave me the opportunity to 
read them in succession. I noticed a number of patterns, changing 
word use from older to the newer ones, spelling variations, and so 
on. I thought that these blurbs taken as a whole would make a lovely 
research base for somebody.

To save you the trouble (and the bandwidth) of searching Dogeared for 
the blurbs, I can e-mail the HTML files. If anyone is interested, 
please let me know.

There's a price, of course: You need to post any observations to the 
ListServ. Non-ListServe members can e-mail me directly with comments.
