Shameless self-promotion: helping future PD officers

From a reader:

I have recently received a conditional offer of employment from the Foreign Service in the Public Diplomacy career track, and am undergoing the clearance process (ugh!).  Your site was a HUGE help in my prep for the oral assessment, not only as a research resource, but also to broaden, stimulate and challenge my thinking about PD.  I know it must not be easy to keep posting while you're busy with other things, but I want you to know how much I appreciate your efforts.  One of these days I'd like to thank you in person, hopefully as a colleague.

Glad to help out.
