coherent train of thought and development

Pardon this, please. Not my role. But maybe we should refer specifically within our contributions to what entry/subject/point we are referring to. Otherwise, I, at least, am getting lost. Textual context is getting disjunctive, and you can’t tell what somebody’s … Continue reading
