These are my notes for some of the texts I use frequently. They are of course not authoritative and reflect my own interests and biases. Some are more carefully edited and well-articulated than others. I am putting them into the common stream, hoping they might be useful to others. I am sharing them subject to the terms of the Creative Commons 4.0 license, which means essentially: you are free to use anything you find here, as long as you say where you got it from, you don't use it as a machine to extract money from others, and you share it like it was shared with you.
