Publishing Guidelines:
These writings sharing a few personal thoughts on one of the biggest problems in the world today (as with all my articles) may be freely published electronically or in print. Please excuse “caps”. I’m not “Shouting”, but this “total non-techno” doesn’t know any other way to make what I consider to be the key points/words stand out.
