  1. Vaughn, I consistently find your stuff useful, interesting, and sometimes just terrific reading on a Saturday morning. Since I am finally recovering from “cognitive deficits” (such a dry term) from undiagnosed/untreated sleep apnea, I am delighted to find myself increasingly able to read these articles without any difficulty. Thanks very much for putting these all together! Best wishes, Si
