As you scroll down you might notice that the precis is missing…. This is because, well, because it is missing…. This morning I have decided to put my “works in progress” into this blog.
This is also an open invitation for you to write a precis on this article. It is a rather intimidating article. I have found though, that the more I read through these intimidating articles, they more they become familiar and the information they contain is easier and easier to understand. This is why this one is here. A precis will follow — I just don’t know quite when.
