Hi Dennis, I enjoyed your participation in that panel I saw you in at Bouchercon last year.

And on the Mencken reference, you got me. I don't know why I wrote Barnum. However, what I said still stands. I wasn't quoting him (either Mencken or Barnum), I was riffing on it, and putting my own twist on the notion.

Glad to have you here!
