Meghann, first of all, THANK YOU. Second, I swear I thought I was just going to write this up and argue all day long with the people who make these eight comments. I expected maybe 10 clicks and that’s it. :-) Jokes on me. I wrote another piece similar to this a month or so ago and deleted it. I thought it wasn’t worth speaking up for the folks like me. Turns out I was totally wrong and more people may have needed someone to defend them. Thank you for reading.
