Thanks for writing this article!  It looks nice and meaty, and I've always
wanted to learn more about monads.

(Quick note on the reference to NULL in SQL; C.J. Date definitely doesn't
like NULL at all; his O'Reilly book "Database in Depth" says that NULLs
break the relational model and the relational algebra; the violations that
NULL presents in SQL makes the algebra nonsensical.  So in a sense, NULLs
do cause his his universe to come crashing down.  *grin*)
