Doug: Now I don't want to say that this Guest Writer thing is becoming commonplace or mundane, because it isn't. Every single post we've received has been exciting to open and peruse -- like a gift from a good friend. And the readers' responses to our fellows have been wonderful as well. But today... to say that today's post is just a bit out of the ordinary would be an understatement! I remarked several days ago that not a day goes by that I don't learn something either from our readers or about our readers. When I checked the BAB email account on the evening of March 17, I was simply blown away by one of your own.
Boy -- are you all in for a treat today! Without further ado, pfgavigan has the floor!
