Ahhhh... although I hesitate to draw any comparison (whatsoever) between Doug Wilson and Isaac Newton, wasn't it John Bernoulli who said "I recognize the lion by his paw" in reference to Newton's anonymously published solution for the brachistochrone problem?

For Wilson's "solution," allow me to be his John Bernoulli: I recognize the clown by his big red nose and floppy feet.

Thanks for the quote, nalfeshnee!
