I’m going to follow in the footsteps of Gail Shaw and post a copyright, just so we’re all clear on the rules. I’m largely using Gail’s language here because I thought it seemed pretty accurate & complete. BUT, I’m giving her full attribution for that language AND I’m editing it in quite a few spots. That’s the difference between stealing and actually working with information. A point apparently lost on too many people these days.
