Well here I am in the blogosphere after swearing I'd never do this. And I still haven't decided if I really want to be here. Do I really need one more website to attend to?
Here's what I'm reading these days. I'll be at it for awhile, I think I started it three weeks ago and I'm not quite 1/3 of the way through it.
