Dramatis Personæ

Perhaps, to steal from a friend I couldn’t both pseudonymize and cite, it might be more accurate to call this page pedigree, provenance, heraldry, rather than a dramatis personæ. Whatever it is, it’s a list of the people I mention in this blog; it’s like a Works Cited page mixed with an index, but with people rather than works and links rather than page numbers. I do not include every single person I mention, or even every single person I mention more than once; my selection will be somewhat idiosyncratic in that way, as is everything everyone does.
