You know, I wrote this whole elegant deconstruction...

...but who really cares?

David is a great guy. I love CoV and I think he's one
of the most tolerant, easy going, receptive people
I've ever "met".

I also think that his T-grid was an excellent idea. I still
have all kind of ideas buzzing in my head (as I'm sure
many of you do) as a result of it. I hadn't really given
visual representations much thought until I saw it.

I still think that <faith> might be of some use to us, even
that darkly shaded "blind faith".

But the message I'd like to communicate today is:

David is great.

If you enjoy hanging out at CoV, remember he created it!

Actually, I had been meaning to say that for a while,
but it always makes me feel a little embarrased.
Gushing like this is not acceptible "male" behavior.

Perhaps I was too caught up in my memes?
