        Subject: citing

Dan O'Donnell's note leads to a question he didn't ask: what might be 
happening to the practice of citation? Though I go to great lengths to 
cite my sources, I can certainly feel the temptation to think that in 
many cases citing a source is unnecessary in the age of Google et al. 
Are people in general drawing a different line than they would have 
drawn prior to the Web between what must be cited and what is 
too easily found to bother with?
