Abstract

‘Spoiler alert’: This editorial speaks to that of Dr. John Williamson that is published in this years issue. I have made some effort to avoid revealing too much of the “plot” but those of you who prefer to enjoy the mystery of the disappearing/appearing slow learner as it is intended to unfold are advised to read Williamson’s article before this one.
