I *Do* Listen!

I *Do* Listen! Happy 4th of July to all my USA readers! --- I get a lot of emails from all my readers, asking a great many questions, and often registering your opinion about a great many things. Currently, everyone is a bit outraged about Amazon's review policy, the language found in historical novels, and
