  1. Hello Rick,

    I agree 100% – not just 80%! I’ve seen your writings on this topic before, and some of what I had in mind when I commented on Dr. Colwell’s article

    was inspired by the type of thought promulgated and expressed in writings such as yours.

    My own professional experiences have also greatly contributed to my strong endorsement of your writings.

    Thank you,
    Adam Goldberg
