Well, I've seen no complaints or groans--yet--about the photo to the right, so I guess it stays. Its presence has nothing to do with ego; I just thought that as you read a visualization of your host in his natural habitat, sans horns and trident, might be helpful. My (thinning) hair is longer now, the beard tends to come and go--depending on my daughter's directional thumb--and I don't ordinarily lounge in a Caribbean-flavored shirt. Otherwise, that is I, for good or ill.
(I guess Facebook doesn't like it. A few readers did, right off, but Facebook wiped them out.)
