    This sounds like some exciting times are ahead. Thanks for inviting the members of SPN not only to visit and read their articles, but also to give feedback. Both from your description seem individuals who can broaden horizons for me.

    Both are wonderful essays and enjoyed them and also left a comment for both of them. This really shows the inner quest of some which unfortunately I lack.
