Say, where is that Chuck Colson guy, anyway?

I’m really not one to trash talk most of the time — I’ll leave that to Martin — or keep score. But I have to observe that it has been a bit over a month since I posted a message to Chuck Colson, and almost three weeks since my last correspondence with Mike, who wrote: …
