I claim copyright to this work with some reservations, since I feel that “intellectual property” is an oxymoron. No one “owns” the words; no one “owns” the ideas. This kind of work should probably be done anonymously, with no claims. But one does have a stewardship responsibility over the expression of ideas, and also those who do this kind of work need food, shelter, and otium cum dignitate. (You could look it up.) Therefore, feel free to quote this work, but be sure to include proper references. This ebook is licensed for your personal enjoyment only. It may not be re-sold or given away to other people. If you would like to share this book with another person, please purchase an additional copy for each recipient. If you’re reading this book and did not purchase it, or it was not purchased for your use only, then please return to Smashwords.com and purchase your own copy. Thank you for respecting the hard work of this author.
