Dedication

John

Thank you for your brutal and much needed honesty,

for your technical assistance and tutelage,

for your esprit de corps.

You always were the smartest one of us.

One of my oldest and dearest friends,

My muse, you were there when the going got tough and found ways to inspire me.
