This thing has popped up 3 times on my Random Articles in the past 2 days. OK, OK already! It's a great article!
Joking aside, it really is (and it really did). You have a wonderful direct style that is a pleasure to read. Also, human competence is one of my particular gods.
(Other types of competence I can do without, for example the competence of tigers and cancer cells.)
Great job, kiddo.
