Speaking of lambdas and gotos, some of you may remember the great
Professor Eiichi Goto of Japan.  You can see an obituary at:


He was one of the Japanese pioneers of Lisp, symbolic computing, and
architectural support for symbolic computing.  He was one of the
developers of "hash-consing".

He used to joke about his own name, along the lines of:

    "I'm considered harmful.  They're all trying to get rid of me."
