This was eerie since I could have written this- not because of the conclusion but the marriage of two similar interests – Gregg Shorthand and the Major Mnemonic System. I, like you, taught myself both and have become an evangelist for them, especially since they are almost unknown among students who need them most. I have met a soulmate it seems! Keep up the good work (when I preach, the shorthand and mnemonic pagans stare at me glassy-eyed… deep sigh).
