This page is for diehards.

 

The dates below link to almost every old (prior to this year) broadly distributed family letter Iíve written (that I can still findómy file maintenance practices have improved as Iíve gotten older). There are some letters Iíve only been able locate in hard copy. Iíve included the dates of these letters among the dates below that link to files. The plan is to scan in the missing letters at a later date, but given my history with updating this site, ďa later dateĒ might never actually come.

 

Iíve struggled with the idea of posting all of these letters on the Internet. Many of them are old enough that they reflect views I donít necessarily hold anymore (and am not necessarily proud of). I was tempted to go back and edit some of them for style and redact out sections that now make me cringe, but I ultimately decided against this because a) I wanted to maintain a (mostly) true reflection of my worldview over time, b) It would have been a lot of work, and c) Theyíre not that bad.

 

So here you have it.
