'Humanities subjects should not and cannot be removed from the march of
science' pronounces Marcus Dahl, recommending what he calls the 'careful
statistical analysis of linguistic data by Ward Elliott'. A careful
statistical analysis that can produce gems such as  'The Elegy . . .  is
790 trillion times closer to Ford than to Shakespeare' certainly seems
hilariously in tune with aspects of our troubled times. My accountant is
worryingly impressed.
