Sorry, Mark. I really must disagree with you. Although I am employed
full-time and don't have much time and energy left for extra-curricular
writing projects right now, the subjects of insurance, publishers,
submitting articles to magazines, etc. still interest me -- more, in
fact than whether consistency/accuracy/grammer/... should come first.
I've already made my peace with that subject, thank you! %-)
