I spent almost two years living in the same house with Ben in the backwoods of Maine during the mid-80s, at a certain place which will haunt me for the rest of my life. Not sure how he feels about it, and I certainly won't try to guess. It was a very, very difficult period of life for both of us - that is one thing that I am quite sure of. In the unlikely event that he ever comes across this "review," I hope you are well, Ben. Nice work!
