"Society in its full sense...is never an entity separable from the individuals who compose it. No individual can arrive even at the threshold of his potentialities without a culture in which he participates. Conversely, no civilization has in it any element which in the last analysis is not the contribution of an individual." --Ruth Benedict"

I helped the following friends get started with their own websites by designing their initial front page and providing a little bit of free advice. From such minimal beginnings, they have both done quite well for themselves, and apparently enjoyed it immensely.
Return To Common Sense
This is Robert ("Bubba") Neligh's website of short essays on political issues. Bubba is a big fan of Thomas Jefferson also, and we have been in correspondence for a long time. I did the front page, the link and the comment pages, and a model page for the essays. Bubba has taken it over from there.
The Collector's Guide to Opera Recordings and Videos
This is Liz and Geoffrey's interesting and useful opera site. Geoffrey was the mainstay of the "Conversations on Morality" website. They both enjoy working on the website, and wouldn't let me do more than the initial version of the front page, to which they have made several improvements, including a real nice looking title.
Range War Along the Pecos
This is John ("Kawboy") Crow's full-length western novel which I first talked him into writing, and then talked him into putting it on the Internet.

I set him up with a couple of model pages, and Kawboy quickly and easily took over from there.
I pledge allegiance to the Constitution
of the United States of America

One Nation, by the grace of God,
securing life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all.
