Huh? What’s that you say? (“A Scholar,” Rembrandt, 1631)

Periodically, we like to look back to see what our most popular posts have been.  We did this in 2009, in July 2010, and again last December. You can also see a running log of our top posts. Popularity isn’t everything, but Tom and I like to keep tabs on what generates interest and spurs conversation.

Here are the most popular posts we published this past year.
