And speaking of comments

Miss Emily Anne suggests that I use an 0ld-fashioned Jack card as a profile image. I hope to sometime develop enough technical acumen to do so. She really knows her court cards, and their storied history! So Jacks used to be known as Knaves, eh? Well, they represented knaves in the sense of being commoners, or servants. The knave, in Hume's sense, is potentially a "tricky, deceitful fellow."
