What’s going on with Ken’s site

Long time readers may know that I took over the maintenance of my dear friend Ken Kifer’s website after he was killed by a drunk driver in 2003. Unfortunately if you go to his site now, it isn’t his site. It’s a Japanese WordPress site. I contacted Joe Gardner, who actually takes care of the …
