Yes, it’s Wednesday afternoon but I want to talk about last Tuesday evening.  That’s when a group of F.O.O.G.

This is Evanier again.  I have seized control of stevegerblog so that it, like Steve’s writing, can live on.  At some point, his family and/or close friends will decide what to do about his weblog and website but I’ll keep them up and running for the time being, if only as a place to remember […]
