The problem with these notes is they are foot notes but they don't ad up to the quotes in the article. The reason for that is the original used superscript numbers to mark the quotes and those were not transfered when I copied and pasted to my blog, then from the blog here. Thus these entries should be written as bib entries for purposes here but instead they are written as endnotes, as they were originally end notes. Many of them don't have page numbers as they come form websites.
