Letters From Tom. A college friend who rose in international business discusses what skills go into leadership in high-tech business. Quite interesting. Someone must have linked this to push the readership this high, and there are unfamiliar commenters. Jan 2010. We still correspond occasionally.
Merritt Ruhlen's List. Ruhlen is a linguist who believes all languages descend from an original, and faint traces of it can still be discerned. It is controversial and often rejected. Since this was written, there is evidence in both directions: more deep connections between at least some families have been proposed; however, evidence for a less linear family tree for homo sapiens sapiens is also showing up. Nothing conclusive. I still think his evidence is good. July 2006
Ofen and Often. The "t" dropped out, but is coming back. The same thing happened to the pronounced "c" in Arctic. Readers seem to want to put these things back in, believing it is more precise. August 2006
The Richmond 12. There is a cult in Richmond, NH which calls itself "traditional Catholic" but is actually Feenyite and not authorised by the Vatican. I go hard after a couple of the commenters who did not read carefully and made assumptions about why I was writing. I read further on the subject after posting, including reviewing the book Deliver Us:Concerning Victimhood. There is a style common to many cults, at least the Christian ones I am familiar with.

Today's Sermon. What question is God asking you? August 2015
