Besides: I feel confident now that you like me for me.

Many, MANY people have not, Erin, to their unspeakable, if unknowable, loss. If this blog can, however humbly and imperfectly, make them aware of the empty, ignorant lives they have so far been leading, well then, my work here will not have been in vain.
