Dear Kap --
No malice prepense in "prepend".
The neology this time was unwitting. I have seen "prepend" as computer jargon, the inverse of "append" (files). When I rechecked OED, I saw what further reaches my failure to perpend might go to -- almost to the perpendicular of my intent.
In any event I am delighted that you will accept the prenomial (is that ok?) of Vice President . . . . so that it can be announced in the near future.
Yours,
Joshua
