    Wow, and she's a philosopher in SMU, a pretty conservative evangelical school. Color me impressed. :p

    Spencer, That's music to my ears. Hope you are enjoying the book.

    DB, SMU has only a vestigial Methodist affiliation. It has no effect on hiring, admissions, curriculum, etc.

    "The Establishment", thanks for inviting me on board.
