Just a couple of weeks ago, in this space, I praised the 1985 Chicago Bears, and specifically Richard Dent on his selection to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Today, I feel the need to say something about Dave Duerson.  Duerson was found dead Thursday evening in his home.  They are now saying that it was a self inflicted gunshot wound.  All of the articles I’ve seen have emphasized that he has donated his brain to research.

I’ve thought about Walter Payton a lot this weekend also.

I have nothing insightful or meaningful to add.  I just wanted to share.

Part of starting a new business is marketing and sales.  Up until recently, building websites and  programing were hobbies.  They didn’t demand time commitments or financial considerations.  I could start working on something because it seemed interesting.  I could offer to help a friend build something just for the fun of it.  In addition to family related sites (chiswick.net) I also built a site for a catering business among others. » Read the rest of this entry «
