What is Mens et Manus?

Library story - This link (now at archive.org) used to be good, until the MIT library apparently took Philip Greenspun's sarcastic advice seriously:
"Final Tip
Reorganize your file system after you're listed in all the Web directories, after folks at other sites have linked to articles on your server, and after search engines have discovered your sites. That way users will be sure to get "404 Not Found" messages after finding your site in Yahoo or WebCrawler."
The Library story can currently be found here (for now, as of 09/08/2001) and here (from archive.org, for another one broken, as of 8/10/2002 or earlier)

Short story
Long story - which is notably the only one of these links not broken since first linked in May '01 (as of August '04), except for Greenspun's, which was revised from the original without breaking.

Quote of the moment
[M]y conception of liberty does not permit an individual citizen or a group of citizens to commit acts of depredation against nature in such a way as to harm their neighbors and especially to harm the future generations of Americans. If many years ago we had had the necessary knowledge, and especially the necessary willingness on the part of the Federal Government, we would have saved a sum, a sum of money which has cost the taxpayers of America two billion dollars.
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945), U.S. president. FDR Speaks authorized edition of speeches, 1933-1945 (recordings of Franklin Roosevelt’s public addresses), side 4, address at Bonneville Dam (Sept. 28, 1937), ed. Henry Steele Commager, Introduction by Eleanor Roosevelt, Washington Records, Inc. (1960).

In this dedication speech for the Bonneville Dam the President spoke to a favorite theme concerning the need for conservation practices and public power projects. He argued that the drought and resultant dust bowl could have been avoided had there been water and conservation practices in place instead of greedy exploitation of natural resources. ~
