Recently, I’ve had several inquiries as to where I’ve been lately, as my face has not appeared on this page a few times already this year. I’m still here. However, you’ll continue to see a few different faces on this page from time to time.

As I’ve answered the recent inquiries as to my whereabouts, I’ve determined that my regular column on this page may lead some to believe that I’m the only editor here. That’s not true, nor am I the only one with industry insight.
