Long-time readers will note that a number of elderly but evergreen essays are reappearing here with some frequency. This is because I have begun to struggle with publishing a collection of essays seen on American Digest from 2001 until 2021. Exactly how I am going to go about this remains to be seen especially since I have no way of knowing if I will sell ten or ten thousand copies. There are also the questions of financing, formats, print preparation, potential sales channels, promotion, marketing, fulfillment, and other items of log-rolling in our time, but I’ll save those until after the initial selection and assembly of the parts for this collection of odds and sods. For now, bear with me as I republish items I am looking at for inclusion.
