Well, by a vote of 15-13, the nays have it, and I will not be joining Facebook. This wasn't exactly a scientific poll, and I'm reasonably certain someone figured out how to vote twice for yes, but in any case the decision is now made (despite what some people, who believed I had already made up my mind to join and was now trying to save face, think. Ha!). Thanks to all who participated - and hey, I have at least 28 readers! Wow! I gotta put some Google ads on this thing and retire!
PS - For the folks who did want to see me on Facebook, find me on Twitter instead.
