I simply cannot let this article go by without sending it out of my hide. I am the Tortoise and I have a very special interest in where I live, breathe and crawl about. At the same time I don’t want jobs to disappear for folks who care about me. Good reading at the above link for an objective view — well, I think so.
Steadfast and cautious,
D. “Tortoise” Taylor
