Thoughts for Progress



David W. Sirkin


This website contains essays and handouts I have written about various topics that interest me.  This website does not contan reader response areas. However, you may write to me at .  I may occasionally append e-mails, or parts of them, and possibly my responses to them, to the essays.  If you would like your name and/or e-mail address included in case I post your e-mail, please state so.  Otherwise e-mails may be quoted without revealing the sender.

Disclaimer: I generally write without doing extensive or systematic research.  While I do not deliberately state falsehoods, there may be factual errors.  Similarly, while I do not steal ideas from others and present them as original, I may unkowingly have an idea or make a discovery that someone else has already had or made.  If you find any errors here or find any of my new ideas or discoveries to be not so new, I would be grateful if you would let me know.

Special disclaimer for health or medical essays and handouts:  Nothing from this website should be considered as medical advice.  Please consult your doctor before acting on any information obtained from this site.
