Several hundred subscribers to this blog choose to get its periodic posts in their "inbox"--you know, so they don't have to check to see if there is anything new. Dare I say there is very good sense here? Just enter your email address in the box to the right and follow the simple instructions.
I'd be grateful, naturally, if you suggested the blog to friends or family members. I have done the math: if every subscriber got one other person, why the number of subscribers would double! (If others are intrigued, but not familiar with the site, you may enter their emails yourself and they would have the option to accept the updates or not. Of course, if you are already getting posts by email, this pitch, and this arrow, will be superfluous, though not the praise for your good sense. But you will actually have to click through to the site to sign others up.)

(Incidentally, if you have questions you feel the lecture is not addressing, or suggestions for developing the argument, suggestions for other venues, and so forth, please feel free to be in touch at the following email:
