I am super bummed to realize I will not see you in my feed. I introduced your writing to my brother Dean Briscoe who is hooked as well.
I first found out about you when I realized you were a fellow StackExchange moderator. I also followed you on Quora as well. Your thoroughly detailed answers were always entertaining to read. Your passion is infectious and has spurred my childhood love of comics more than the big budget Superhero movies ever did.
I am sorry about your troubles in life though. Your experience at Google is unfortunate and one that I hope did not harm your ability to reenter the workforce. You have to put your children and family first though and your son will be better for it. Your son sounds awesome by the way. The world would be a better place if we were all more like him.
Good luck to you!
