This ping list is not author-specific for articles I'd like to share. Some for the perfect moral clarity, some for provocative thoughts; or simply interesting articles I'd hate to miss myself. (I don't have to agree with the author all 100% to feel the need to share an article.) I will try not to abuse the ping list and not to annoy you too much, but on some days there is more of the good stuff that is worthy of attention. You can see the list of articles I pinged to lately on my page.
You are welcome in or out, just freepmail me (and note which PING list you are talking about). Besides this one, I keep 2 separate PING lists for my favorite authors Victor Davis Hanson and Orson Scott Card.

His comments about the disappearance of the dinner table in England reminds me of Booker T. Washington's perspective. In UP FROM SLAVERY he describes the informal nature of dining among sharecroppers and his desire to see Black families sit down at the table and eat together formally. Ceremonial dining was one of the values instilled at the early Tuskegee Institute. Washington would be so disappointed to see today's informal style and such a disappearance of the dinner table.
