Occasionally I have something on my mind that prompts me to speak out. Below are a collection of some of my professional thoughts through the years; topics vary widely of course - that's how my brain works. Some of the topics below are very personal to me and I hope those reading won't hold that against me or be offended by my candid remarks.
