Welcome, Macon!. Macon accepted the invitation to join the blog, and has posted two of them! He even figured out how to do a link. I sent invitations to others, and I will send some more out shortly.
In the meanwhile, I am going to see if we can set up the blog to do threads. I was just itching to edit Macon's blog. Don't get me wrong, though, it was a good first draft. (Actually, as "administrator" of the blog, I could edit Macon's posts without having to use a thread to comment on it. But I will restrain myself.)
