I really should again extend thanks to all those who make this blog possible. Not everything is written by me; an awful lot is cribbed from other sources. Just three names (of many) that come to mind: Tom Kindlon, statistician; Mary Schweitzer, professor; Ellen Goudsmit, psychologist. People with a lot more expertise in their areas of expertise than I have, and who say it so clearly that there's no point in my trying to re-explain it in my own words. (And, I'll admit, some of what I'm re-posting, I don't understand well enough to explain the critical parts, only the conclusions.)
Big bouquets to all my "ghostwriters", and to John O'Connor, who unfailingly knows what I need before I need it. I cannot tell you how many times over the years I have thought "I need to google up some information about X" and when I turn on the computer John has already googled up exactly what I need and it's waiting in the mailbox. How he does that from a continent away is beyond me, but I'm infinitely grateful for his mind-reading capabilities.
I couldn't do it without you.
