Note about my blogs: I reserve the right to edit or rewrite my blogs as my opinions change and evolve through discussion and maturity. If an element of a particular blog changes significantly, I will likely release a later version for further discussion. Please look for those later versions before reading and commenting. Please don’t take this as an invitation to recklessly assault my opinions hoping to change them. I am stronger than that. Logical and thoughtful rebuttals, however, may persuade me to rethink my stance.
