Americans are shy! At least the ones who read my blog seem to be!
I have had many people tell me they liked this post but no one NO ONE has entered a comment on the thing!
I added a few lines of the "IF" post after tweets or emails I received asking why I left this or that off.
I really wish someone would come out of the closet as it were and actually write something directly on the post!
But until that time when some of you grow a pair I will continue to do the honors for you!
Thanks to my readers and anyone who comments.
Keep the faith!
