This morning, I had an opportunity to do some work on putting my money where my mouth is. I’ve been haranguing about Negative Outcomes and wanted to come up with some actionable practice. If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem, as the saying goes.

Around 5 a.m., someone was loading a pickup in the parking lot outside my apartment. There was quite a bit of ‘bumping,’ which woke me up. Everything was still dark and otherwise quiet. I was satisfied that it was indeed a truck being loaded and what was being loaded wasn’t mine.

      1. What I’m attempting to say is that the article overflows to either the left or right, off the screen. One has to drag letter and right to read each line.

        In contrast, look at one of the sites I maintain: The site “reacts” to the size of the ‘viewport’, or screen device it’s displayed on. It makes each line of text just long enough to fit the width, breaking it so all you have to do is scroll down.
