| Please tell that to the ANSI Common Lisp specification then Erik.

  Please read the rest of my article, Adam.  I have actually tried to
  answer your problem and point to a solution.  I have implicitly asked you
  to think.  Now I ask you explicitly: If you insist on behaving stupidly,
  I must conclude that you are no longer interested in a solution, if you
  ever where, but in arguing and quibbling.  I am interested in solving
  problems, but some people are so dead set on being personally "right"
  that they lose track of their problem.  Which is more important to you:
  Having _been_ right by insisting on your past understanding or _becoming_
  right by learning and thinking?  If you do not display some evidence of
  actual thinking if you choose to respond, you will get the last word.
  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
