Hi. I have neglected this site for some time now. At the risk of sounding a bit sentimental I want to say I have a good excuse. My wife Julia and I had a son and we couldn’t be happier.
Nathan J.P. Winters (aka Nathan Detroit) was born Dec. 18th 2007. He’s fantastic, we are all doing great, and every good thing you’ve ever heard about being a new parent is true.
…and now back to work.

First let me say welcome back and congratulations. Where does the Detroit come from?
Hi Bro, Nathan Detroit is a character from “Guys and Dolls.” He was played by Frank Sinatra in the movie version. Peter started it and it has stuck:)
The line from the song is “good old reliable Nathan, Nathan, Nathan, Nathan Detroit; he’s the oldest established permanent floating crap game in New York…”
By the way, if you think being a parent is a good thing, wait ’til you’re a grandparent!
