I was just paging back through blog entries and found a wonderful response from a reader named Allan. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any contact information for him. His comments include some incredible details (with notes and references, huzzah!) that truly deserve wider dissemination. Allan, if you’re still reading and with your permission, I’d like to re-post this as an actual blog entry.
Technically challenged as I am at times, I found the function on the blog that emails me when I get comments…finally.
