some things off on accident *lol*. I meant to add that the reason I
didn't want to change the graph right away is that I hoped a number
of people would have some points or questions dealing with the
categories that we could use to create a larger graph. Maybe some
people even have been thinking of the categories in a very different
way, or even disagree with this chart for some reason.
I was also trying to do the timeline, but I just can't seem to make
it look readable.
