I am happy to present the May installations of the AikiWeb columns at http://www.aikiweb.com/columns/
. In addition to our current columnists -- Chuck Clark, George S. Ledyard, Ross Robertson, and "The Mirror" -- I am happy to announce that Paul Schweer has decided to join as a regular columnist as well. Welcome, Paul! I hope this month's columns is as interesting to everyone visiting AikiWeb as they were for me. Enjoy!
