Judith, you worried about being long-winded, but I thought your
post was wonderfully humane. Some folks might get after you for
not being "scientific," but there's more to life than science.
Things like sensitivity, decency, and compassion are, to put it
mildly, very important, and those you seem to have in spades, as
well as a good eye for what goes on around you.

Thanks for your comments!
