This blog has languished for many months while I fell prey to the siren call of Amazon.com's discussion threads. That has been a mixed experience.
I continue to be appalled by the incivility that festers on the Internet. People say things to other people on blogs or in discussions that they would never dream of saying to someone in person. For many participants, insults, verbal assaults, ad hominem attacks on authors and posters and accusations of "lying" against folks who dare to disagree with you are the order of the day.
I have had some worthwhile exchanges with bona fide "seekers" in these discussions, and will no doubt continue to take part, but am going to make a concerted effort to "get current" with this blog.
