When I wrote the post that appears just before this one, I should have begun it with the following apology:
Thank you to all who read my blog. I have been unfair to you. I have not written any new posts from December 24th until today--more than two months! Shame on me. I will try hard to be more diligent in the future, since I feel very fortunate for the opportunity to communicate in this manner, and very thankful to The Morning Journal (and its fine Editor) for giving me the opportunity to do so.
