Kat, a great idea! It's had two effects on me already: I see a lot of articles I want to read; and I want to contribute more. I work a lot better in an organized environment. It took me a long time to discover that. I tend to be a little distractable. For me, focus and discipline are an act of will, not a natural inclination. Thanks for assisting my will.

Thanks for the index. It is a good idea.

Two of my articles are not yet on your list. These are:

The Virtues of Benevolence and Tolerance

Benevolence:People as Tolerance:Ideas

Now, to date no one has commented on these two articles. I viewed my earlier articles as developments of my ideas and perspectives leading to these two articles. I thought those earlier articles were useful in that just as I needed to develop my perspective to be able to write the last two articles, they would be useful background and might help others to develop a shared perspective, so that these last two articles I wrote would have the proper context for my readers. Somehow, they have had the lowest readership, possibly because they are at the end of the line. Maybe, the total effort to read the entire set is too great. I admit that I have yet to find the time to read many articles by others that I would like to read myself.

But, it is these two articles that I have most hoped to have feedback about!

Charles: "But, it is these two articles that I have most hoped to have feedback about!"

Charles, sometimes when I see a fairly lengthy article that looks interesting, I decide to wait until I have a bit more time before reading it and responding. That's the case with your two articles. It's most definitely not lack of interest.

I do understand! I have hopes of finding the time to read many of the articles here myself. Some that I have read, I have not responded to since I did not have enough time to do them justice or justice to my comments.

I really appreciate your interest. Exchanging ideas with you is a great thrill. It does not hurt that you are what an angel ought to be, not perfect, but genuinely good.
