Excellent thesis, CIC .... only read about 3/4 of it (it IS a long read!), but with this post it becomes a 'bookmark' as it were (or in your effort to define "conservatism", a set of values to return to) ... will read the rest 1/4 later
Thanks to all for your kind responses!
I felt I had something, even tho it clearly is long - so much so that I actually did a save in the middle of it, like the good(?) old days - and it saved my bacon because it got so windy here yesterday that I had a power dropout!! I still had to reconstruct a paragraph or two . . .
And I recognized that the paragraphs are long, too. But I reached a limit internally, and just wanted to get it out. Thank you for your indulgence.
BUMP! BUMP! BUMP!
