Explanatory Post Coming Soon

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006

Still recovering from the pneumonia, but I need to make note of this one event before any more time goes by: Last Friday, September 15th, was among the most important days of my life. I saw my daughter Samantha that day for the first time in eighteen years. What separated us for so long isn’t […]

Humans are instinctively interested in the particulars of each other’s existence. Dr. Phil has built an empire on that principle.
