As of January 2015, "Firpo Files Flashpoint"
will be a new feature of this Web site, and is scheduled to appear at least once a month. It will consist of brief articles
(some of them guest articles that may or may not be of a controversial nature that do not reflect my own views) considering
points of interest on a variety of topics--including humor--as culled from various sources.
The more scholarly articles that I proffer are obviously subject to less than perfect
conclusions. Therefore, you are welcome to examine them for yourself, and thereafter make a determination as to the soundness
(or lack thereof) of my reasoning.
