Review A Blogger Meme – You are Tagged

I reckon I started something by accident. And someone else has followed. Well, Dr. McGrath has commanded a meme. And so here is the assignment of anyone reading this (you’ve been tagged!): review another blogger. Not their blog, not their publications, but the person.

Canon within a Canon (Meme, anyone?)
