Hi, Brian.
After a frustrating morning of editing yesterday, two emails, requesting permission to publish, popped up in my inbox.
THAT never happens in my life!
Our Canada/Reader's Digest Feb 2018 Issue will publish "Namesake in a Legend" and the Globe and Mail will publish "Life Support" as a Facts and Arguments essay.
Needless to say I had a swollen head most of the evening and no wine induced it.
