2. Remove large chunk of chapter; send to circular file.

3. Chop remaining material into chunks; rearrange sequence.

4. Write new introduction and transitions to fill in gaps.

5. Make that sucker work.

6. Large numbers of heavy-poured drinks may be involved. Try to make it to day job on time next morning.
