|Make the bad paper go away!!!

My brain is bleeding.
I have a five-inch-high stack of research that is the stuff I have cited, and doesn't include the hundreds of pages that I can't work in.
I'm not done yet. But I'm on the last section before the conclusion. And I just can't do anymore tonight. I'm about ready to cry because I know that somewhere in that stack of already-cited material is an article with one sentence that I need to cite to in my next footnote. I know I've read it. I just can't remember which article it is in.
This is the most intellectually difficult task I have ever undertaken in my entire life. I never under any circumstances want to do anything like it again.
Ferrett has urged me to share some of the information I have gleaned with all of you, because some of it is truly alarming. I just don't have the capacity to write more about it just now. Perhaps next weekend, when I won't feel compelled to cite to my sources, I will share.
I must sleep now. So I can do it all over again tomorrow. Please bear with me; I promise to be interesting again soon....
