Geez! I just realized I'm half way (more?) through this book and I forgot to comment on the dedication. Wow. Look at this sweet guy. A marvelous dedication of the book to the Laurie Doctor we EGR readers have come to know and whose sanity we hold in question in light of her long-lasting affection for Chris. Remember his first nervous moments re-discovering her? Now here we EGRers are with him still, the book dedicated to Laurie. It is an act of commitment I consider unspeakably brave.
And here's why. In the early days of email, secure logons, and passwords (remember?) I began using my dog's names as my passwords. You know, easy to remember. Aren't they sweet. That kind of thing. Then, one by one over the course of a year, the password-named dogs either died or ran away. I mean to tell you, Peanut, Bebop, Jazzy. Bam, Bam, Bam. As a result, I am irrationally paranoid of putting loved ones names in print. I won't use the name of any living organism as a password. Some might claim this attitude is superstitious. I say bunk; it's good old fashioned pessimism.
So cheers to you Chris Locke--for being man enough to push aside any number of DSMs and boldly plunge your flag of love into the fertile ground that is Gonzo.
That's all for now.
