Lead by Example.

[Return to Table of Contents.]

I sometimes wish, as I do and present my research, that I could simply ‘cite’ anonymous sources, or make general claims about things and people without specific references.  It would be so much easier, and so much quicker.  Some people are permitted to operate that way, when even more than an academic degree is on the line.  Instead, like any honest scholar (and responsible professional), I have to write hundreds of footnotes and include something like this:
