"As best as I can recall, my introduction to Colan was this tale of the Crusher:
Unfortunately, I'm not sure how I came to read it. I was too young to have read this issue in '67. Most likely, it was the Marvel…"
"I began this year -- literally on January 1 -- with a read/re-read of the Holmes canon. Although I intended to read it all, in order, I dreaded starting with A Study in Scarlet, which I had slogged through twice before. And…"

The hit-counters tell me that somebody's out there reading it, but it's an especial treat to get a note like yours. I completely understand the business about not saying anything unless you have something to say. In reflexion, I'm the same way. Not only on threads here, but I frequent other sites regularly, and have yet to post a comment---because there's nothing I can add to the commentary.
