Socrates had his Plato. Odysseus had his Homer. Johnson had his Boswell. Now Hershey has his own biographer (hey, I'm the best he can hope for). So, Jack, you and I are the two oldest guys on ET. We have similar educational backgrounds. We were both in federal service. We're both published authors. We both pretend to trade. Whaddaya say? You are ET's protege (in the French sense of "protected"), so I am sure moderation will delete the flames and help us keep it serious. I will be presumptive and ask my first question: Are your accomplishments documented on the web other than in the ERIC and Amazon publications references that are easy to find? P.S.: No flaming, please, out of respect for my advanced age.
