Let me correct this mental model ;^) It's true that the Advanced Search
Window doesn't allow for two phrases, but it's easy to type

       "rule of law" "learning organization"

.. in the "normal search" window -- I just did it and got 221 hits,
including the World Citizen Foundation and an interesting article from The
Portland Learning Organization by Andrew Jones and Elizabeth Sawin, which
I think may have been posted here. (Of course you could continue this
with any number of phrases and individual words.)

[Host's Note: Yes, we did. I know and respect Drew Jones. .. Rick]

Happy hunting,
