My Short Response to Derek Powazek

Dear Derek,

The website for your quarterly, Fray,  is producing duplicate content due to a canonical issue with the www versus non-www version,

http://www.fray.com

http://fray.com

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=9Jj&q=site%3Awww.fray.com&aq=f&oq=&aqi=

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=HKj&q=site%3Afray.com&aq=f&oq=&aqi=

So much for the obvious.

Love,

Dave

    to call for help, you find that there’s something really wrong with the place. We know that as drivers get older, especially in their 70s and beyond, a number of cognitive problems can get in the way of safe driving.
