The past author of this blog has relinquished control of the blog to me, the future author! He only required that the profile and the part about the pit bull, etc., stay the same (I do have a pit bull, too).
His professional blogging has been moved to his professional website(s) and I have a desire to express continued opinion about some of the things heretofore covered, so he relinquished the blog to its current and future author, me! I am loyal to the author and had been following the blog and thought it was worth maintaining.
This is all just FYI, in case you were familiar with this blog before 7/15/2009. Consider this now a private blog under new authorship.
