"You said something about interpersonal communications?"

Personal Column

As I stated in my Welcome Web page I said I would start a personal column on life and all matters I see related from recent events in the world and my life. The plan is to put this on-line every Monday, give or take a day. After all I'm retired and working on my new career of my lifelong hobby in photography. And so I'm entitled to be either a little late or lazy some weeks. Ok, the rest of my life, but I'll work on that.

The cartoon? No photo? That's right. I kept this cartoon near my workstation at work as a message to people, especially managers and bosses, who wanted "to talk to me", meaning they wanted talk at me. I think many of you know the tune and the tone.

All the essays after January 2007 are available here, as is a list of all the opinion essays below. In addition you can find my news and opinion blog for other essays and comments on the news.
