Monday was among the most-memorable days of my career. It's during times of crisis that you can see who your real friends are. The outpouring of support has just been great and I've been getting all sorts of offers, including some opportunities at major publications. Looks like my readership is about to increase greatly.
If you've written to me and haven't yet received a response, I'll try to get to everybody soon. But, to all, thanks again for your help, advice and words of encouragement. Here are a few excerpts from the more-public expressions of support:

"We at Foresight all wish Howard excellent success in his new career as a freelancer--send some assignments his way!"
