When it comes to research, I don’t think the web has been an improvement. I recognize it makes things so much easier, but you know what? Sometimes easier is not better. The fact that you used to have to go to a library, you’d have to research things … it was an exercise to have to do that. Nowadays, you have something you want to check, you just plug in a fact into Google search and ten thousand sites come up.… Any statement you want to make … you could have ten thousand citations in your footnote. The citations are completely worthless, but they’re citations.
