"I received your copies of "Consider this..." last week -- they're
great. I only wish I had more issues to publish so I could use more of
this. This is the kind of writing I'm looking for. Good luck with

I see out there now."
-Dennis Osterwisch, editor
"Mike, I hope you love the treatment of your piece as much as we do!"
-Celia R. Meadow, editor
"It's nice to know that someone else out there is interested in
publishing/writing and is not out to just make a quick buck. It's very

that passion and not greed."

you have found your niche - to the delight of all who read your work."

"My reason for writing? To compliment you for the poignant article written
about your boyhood/baseball friendship. The message? It came through loud
and clear. But more than that, I found myself transported back to my own
childhood. Your words conjured up faces, and names, and experiences...you
made that wonderful, magical, universal connection that every creative
individual endeavors to make. Congrats!"

touched by the truth of your words."
"Dear Philosopher Mike, Congrats on your "Consider this..." of July 2. I
have been preaching it for over 50 years - never better said than in your
own statement. I would expect that Diogenes, with his lantern, might stop
at your door having completed his search for an honest man."
-Rev. T.R. Florida

jewel - I pay lots of attention to journalism and your column is
