[NOTE; BUMPING THIS TO THE TOP—folks, read the Bill Whittle essay. Just CLICK the link and read. Just. Do. It. In the past few days, I have had multiple upon multiple hundreds of folks view posts on this blog. Yet only one has commented on this post. So read, especially the update at the end.]

Read and then CLICK on one of the links above... or anywhere in the text below.
