Dorrance Publishing Co, Inc.: I am currently reading Gandhi’s List of Social Sins, Lessons in Truth by Frank Woolever. I am only on page 32, but thus far I am very impressed with both the presentation of the material and the style it is written in.

So, some of you may have noticed me messing around with different donate buttons and different ways to get you to consider donating. Finally, tonight, I have decided that the best thing to do is to write out my vision. If you choose to help me get there, great! If not, Great!
