Interview in Black Scholar (Jan-Feb 1977)
In August, 2001 I became an Editor in both the Books and the Movies categories. Since these are new titles here at Epinions and we are the first group to hold such designations, I am currently unsure as to what all this means. However, one thing I believe it does show is that by associating with some of the best in our little community, I have made only a positive impression upon someone, somewhere within Epinions. Thanks to all you sterling characters in my Web of Trust. I couldn't have done it without you!
For two consecutive months prior to my becoming an Editor in the two categories above, I had been an Advisor in Books. Thanks to all my readers for helping me achieve and retain this honor. As a life-long lover of reading and writing books/stories, I have enjoyed sharing my opinions about those books I've read with others here at Epinions in hopes of assisting them in making a wise purchasing decision.
Congratulations, also, to those on my Web of Trust who have recently become Editors and/or Top Reviewers in indicated categories.
