perhaps snark is a way of life for you, i am not qualified to comment. i do wonder if you have missed the point here. the point being.... i mentioned the fact that I am a writer, not to impress ( i have plenty of devotees without seeking out a few more in SF), but to impress upon the next reader that a qualified critique of the " shoe review" was undertaken and that this piece is deserving of a first, second or even a third read. this type of expertize, shoes and clear writing, is worthy of note regardless the time of penning. compliments, especially about writing, here or elsewhere, should find voice when the mood strikes, don't you think? writing is very much a solitary sport, so recognition, when deserved, is usually welcomed by the creative mind.
look around at the written word contained in sf. many would do well to emulate mr harris in clear thinking and in the written expression of critical thought....enough said.
suffice to say that should you pen a piece that deserves recognition, i will be the first to compliment your efforts. I take from a brief review of past posts, that you know much about shoes so .....bless us with your wisdom.
