Hah! I read the "critique" the Baruch student made about your spelling and found a spelling mistake in his/her blog (who's should have been whose - I'm a former English teacher and an all around lover of the written word, plus I'm horribly anal, so I notice these things)! You keep on doing what you do, kids; you are always infinitely readable!

Cheers,
