No, this is a comment on the state-of-the-art of Deborah typing half an
hour after she has said she would go to bed, so tired, and typing
instead of dictating so her hands hurt so she's being a lazy thinker to
get everything down as quickly as possible.  Ala Sophie, who makes all
kinds of excuses and preconditions for failure but really just never
stops to *think*. ;)
