New Site is Finally Active

Off to a new platform!

After further research I figured it better to move to a wordpress.org site (and yes, I should have done that from the get go).  The new site’s address is :

www.sagesigma.com

And thank you everyone !  I’ve appreciated everyone’s comments, feedback, and criticism.  I’ve enjoyed getting to know many of you, and look forward to keeping our correspondence in place moving forward.  All of us realize there is more to these topics than a simple black/white or good/evil perspective; and that perspective, I think, is much more rewarding in the long run.

As a side-note, I’ll continue to move all material located here to the new site, so not all is lost.  I should have two new articles up on the new site by the end of the week.  Thanks again for everyone’s patience.
