feel free to contact me when it comes to questions regarding
``Comprehending Queries.''  

Understanding database queries as (specific) functional programs
is far from being an obsolete endeavor.  Quite the contrary. 
Think LINQ (Microsoft) or Links (Philip Wadler).  Or Kleisli
(Limsoon Wong).  Or monoid comprehensions (Leo Fegaras). 
Or Ferry (my group at U Tübingen) [1].
