I have to recommend this NYTimes article appearing in the modern love section...It's written by a dear friend and mentions moving to Cali. What could be a more appropriate link for a Thursday afternoon?
Please note that as my M.A. thesis project is complete, the George Washington University is no longer overseeing research conducted in conjunction with this blog (effective June 2007 to present). The Informed Consent Materials created while this blog was under GWU's IRB oversight are still available for your information and the principles outlined in them are still being used as a general guide for my continued work.
