Reading http://ssc.wisc.edu/~ahanna/20_newsgroups.csv after downloading it using

data <- read.csv("20_newsgroups.csv",header=TRUE)

throws this.

Warning message:
In scan(file, what, nmax, sep, dec, quote, skip, nlines, na.strings,  :
  EOF within quoted string

So, for example, the first line in the file is this. This column contains only 
such text. Is there a way read it ?

 short triumph while it is still there.
