In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"A monkey, who wanted to stop or derail a large freight train near his habitat in the forest, was very determined. He was motivated by many factors; among them were his popularity, prestige, and recognition with the other monkeys in the forest. This monkey thought he had all the advantages on his side. It wasn't far to the tracks from his home and there was a clear view from the mountain top where he could see the on-coming train. The daring monkey was going to stop the train at whatever cost or pain was involved. The monkey knew the train was very heavy and over-packed, but that did not deter him."
