I don't leave a ton of responses, but after reading a few of the remarks on "Smiles for Sandy Hook Elementary: A Minnesota Children's Art Project". I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it only me or does it look like like some of the responses come across like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you post a list of every one of your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
