EDITOR'S NOTE. This is an interesting item in that it reflects the
divergence of opinion on ADA among some of the senior VN specialists.
Andrew Field was also disappointed in ADA.
Thanks very much for your response to my query re the Plummer film and the
Ada annot. Both pieces of information are extremely helpful. I was just
told by another NAB-L subscriber that three years ago he, himself, spoke
with Professor Appel about the possibility of such an annotation and was
told by Prof. A that he, as well as many other scholars capable of writing
such a work, didn't think Ada was "worth" an annotation. How shocking and
wrong, I thought.
