I am indebted to the reviewers of this paper for their critique. Their thoroughness and thought were valuable to me in rewriting. It has not been practicable for me to respond to those of their suggestions that were directed towards enhancing its references to symbolic interactionism. Though deeply influenced by the work of George Herbert Mead, originally introduced to me in Tamotsu Shibutani's brilliant course at the University of California at Berkeley in the late 1950s, my history in sociology has not been in symbolic interaction, and I cannot redirect it at this point. I have, however, reworked the paper to develop its dependence on Mead more fully, and I hope this will compensate for the deficits they found. I am also very appreciative of the critical thought and eye of my friend and colleague Liza McCoy.
