On a separate note . . .


 We don't often pull back the curtain on the show, but I'd like to pay tribute to a friend who passed during the making of this Episode.  My dog Socks passed away Tuesday night.  She has been my constant companion ever since we rescued her six years ago.  She sat in my lap for the editing of each and every episode.  She did so for the beginning of this one.  I started the edit with her by my side and finished it with her ashes upon my desk.  I've been very upset by the loss, but pushed through the emotion that came with trying to edit alone to bring you this episode because it's important.  There is a message within it that needs to be heard.  If you agree, share it and spread the word.  I'd appreciate it.  Socks, not so much, she wasn't in it for art or sending a message.  She just wanted to hang with me.  I'll miss her terribly.  Her urn has taken permanent residence on my editing station.  We'll bring you another episode next week.  Thanks.
