  Huh?  Bind *print-case* to :downcase, and the printer will print symbol
  names in all lower-case.  With all the clamoring some people engage in to
  point out how ugly Common Lisp is with upper-case symbol names, this
  simple printer control variable setting at least takes care of the
  problem of seeing the supposedly ugly upper-case letters in replies.

  Norway is now run by a priest from the fundamentalist Christian People's
  Party, the fifth largest party representing one eighth of the electorate.
  Carrying a Swiss Army pocket knife in Oslo, Norway, is a criminal offense.
