I started this set of essays in 1990 with the intention of publishing it in book form shortly before the year 2000. Now that we have the Web, I'll publish it continually here as I complete each essay. Millennium is an electronic book of traditional essays.  

Dedicated to the memory of my father, Prof. Charles F. Wallraff
1908 - 1991
