Analyze or Else! guest post on BCG blog Springboard
Earlier this week I had a guest blog post on analysis on BCG's blog Springboard . Unusually, this is a blog that is edited, so hopefully this post will stand the test of time better than some others. And, yes, the editors helped make it better.

Yes a very good article, I read through it several times. I had already submitted my paperwork for SAR when I received this NGSQ in the mail. I always read carefully all articles pertaining the Amer. Rev. War so interesting to see how others have proven descent .
