Why does he need to write a list of tie ins? It's an article about closures (among other things). That seems fairly self explanatory to me. Should he copy and paste the entire column? Whats the point? Should he copy random parts of it? Of course closures are a fairly difficult subject.. what does that have to do with merlyn writing a column on it? I doubt he writes columns on boring, easy mundane things. How does "I have a column on it" Sound even remotely condescending to you? It's just like saying "well, heres a good book about the subject" or "This is a good reference on X".
