Why Not Another Round of the * Game?
Going forward, I won’t post every week. I’ll review big or interesting cases. And I’m sure I’ll still read all of them; habits are hard to break.
Thanks everyone who helped me write these posts — especially the good folks in the BYU Library and my many, many research assistants (I’m still trying to compile the full list). For what is worth, re-reading my posts, I cringed at a few, still liked others, and forgot a lot of them. On the whole, though, not a bad way to spend every Friday for five years!
