In case it's not obvious: credit for most (if not all) of what appears in this ^zhurnal belongs to others --- thoughtful writers, kind colleagues, patient teachers, clever friends, and especially my family. In particular, time and again I find myself re-expressing ideas first heard clearly from my wife, Paulette Dickerson. I've tried to explain and expand upon themes that all of you have shared with me; apologies for inadvertent garbles and infelicitous phrasings. For the less-unsuccessful postings here, my thanks to you all --- and especially to you, Dear!
