Through separate channels I learned that these guys who've been posting
these questions about the "Guess The Animal" program are taking a class
where the instructor gave them this (badly-broken!!) source code you've
been seeing over & over, assigning them the task of "fixing" it -- *before*
they were taught the basic syntax & semantics of the language!! This is
apparently this instructor's idea of how to teach Scheme. (*gag!* *barf!*)

At least, it was last week. This week it's Java...  (And next week...?)
