Tony is right.  "Methodological Repression' was what I was referring 
to.  Sorry it didn't pan out.


>I could be mistaken, but I think that the "response" that Greig Henderson is referring to is not the one to Booth in 1974, but Burke's 1978 CI piece "Methodological Repression and/or Strategies of Containment."  Like Prof. Klumpp I gave this document the old college try as well.  Nada.  Though I did find another use of "solemn."
