Tracy has bestowed upon me the Excellent Blog Award! Thanks, Tracy!
* FYI, this is a misquote of Sally Field's 1985 acceptance speech. What she actually said was, "I haven't had an orthodox career, and I've wanted more than anything to have your respect. The first time I didn't feel it, but this time I feel it, and I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!" (What did we do before Wikipedia?)
