Chris Lott said it better than any of us could…

This is a blog.  It is not a peer-reviewed journal, a final archive of my writing, a sponsored publication, or the product of gate keeping and editing. That does mean something… it means that while the ideas and thoughts are often vital and the product of a long gestational period, the writing itself is not. It is essentially as it came from the keyboard: spontaneous, un-proofed, unrevised, and corrected afterward only when necessary to address mistakes that grossly affect the intent.  (Lott, 2001)

Last but certainly not least… thank you for visiting our humble blog.  We hope that you find something useful in it that can make a small part of your world more tolerable.
