So many individuals, over so many years, contributed ‘‘real-life’’ scenarios
that form the essence of practice leading to writing this manuscript—
far too many to name, but I deeply thank you all.
A few, however, made in-process contributions. I acknowledge the
Honorable Richard Nass, B.S., M.B.A.—business associate, friend, and
Maine House representative. To ‘‘wade’’ in the waters of any technical or
grammatical beginning is a tenacious undertaking, but to wade in mine
necessitates uncommon stamina.
