The Essays that appear in the Slingshot Organizer

Note:  Oy Slingshot is not good at storing computer files . . . for a few recent organizers we have some already-typed-in versions of articles we published (though not always the final version that we printed) – for the older ones, we have the paper copies but need to type them in or scan them, so please be  patient. . . .
