When Bob Arkin invited me to participate in this project, I knew immediately what I might write about, but the whole idea seemed quite freighted. It moves us, I think, toward ruminating self-servingly and writing bleatingly. I've found it a little easier to do that than I'd like to admit. Nevertheless, I am pleased to be included and to submit a contribution.
