Hello Mr. Jenkins.
Daniel Ray here. I saw that our exchange and its subsequent deletion has been turned into a blog entry.
If you would like to continue our discussion, I would be more than willing.
Please forgive my social media faux paus and please recognize there is far more going on in my life right now. Deleting the thread and canceling my FB account were the only options I had at present. The mistake was in writing and posting the thread in the first place.
Huge transitional period from employment to full-time student, a household move from California to Texas, car repair, dental work and two writing project deadlines, tutoring students and saying good-bye to family and friends here in California.
Facebook went from a diversion to a detriment very quickly and I have lost an inordinate amount of time (days, in fact) in research, writing and getting everything together for the move.
I knew better when I began the thread.
Again, my apologies. If you wish to e-mail me you may do so a email@example.com.
