   Essays, like children, are never fully raised, but at some point they must be let go to engage the world on their own.  And, like children, essays are never perfect, never-the-less the parent is proud. Thus, please feel free to email me ( ) if you would like to make suggestions or discuss any of my essays.  I am especially interested in input from domain experts who can offer a critical analysis of my work and from those who disagree with me and can clearly articulate a challenge to my positions.
