First-class ranting

Thank you Ken for a forceful and enlightened rant on the archiving mentality, the evergreen value of much knowledge, and the need for self-contained show material. I agreed with not only the general sentiment, but probably with every word said.

I'm glad you don't believe in editing things down.
