Receiving thanks 

One of the nicest things that happens to me is when someone notices this blog and speaks to me in public. It happened today in the oddest place; I was giving a talk on the local economy to a professional luncheon group and was approached afterwards. "I appreciate you coming in here and breaking down all these numbers, but I appreciate even more, as an SCSU almunus, you writing to the paper and on your website about how silly this diversity training is."

You're welcome, sir. That's why I don't need a tip jar.
