  4. Congratulations! I hope you walk away with the top laurels. Once upon a time, I wrote reviews for ForeWord; it is a fine publication even though they included me as a reviewer. Now, excuse me. I must continue packing the crates, boxes, and the car.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
