As I scurried to find the term “casuistic” in my Webster’s Ninth, so I could at least understand the title of Ham’s critique of my CPS syndrome paper, 30-year-old memories of frantic efforts to translate Richard E. Ham’s seemingly daily memos to his Ohio University colleagues of the early 1960s came flooding back to me. It was my first academic appointment and my first position following completion of my doctorate. Already fancying myself as something of a wordsmith apprentice, I suddenly found myself in the presence of a wordsmith master. That, in addition to his pioneering delayed auditory feedback research effort with the legendary Mack Steer, made the young Ham a most imposing figure to me. Were it not for the fact that he and his wife, Anne, fed this then-poor, -lonely, -single waif many a fine meal during my 2 years in Athens, I doubt if I would ever have achieved the balance of objectivity and subjectivity that enables me now to respond dispassionately to his assessment of my paper.
