Hm. You have a big list and a small list of dates, both sorted (or readily sortable).
And for each date in the small list, you want to find the subset of the big list that are 1 year either side.
And you search anew for each item in the small list?
Here's a one-pass algorithm:
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
