It seems like the Bayesian folks like to hide.  Hey, I just want to get the
job done whether using frequency or Bayesian stats.  Can anybody suggest
a good introduction to Bayesian Analysis?

Gelman's book "Bayesian Data Analysis' while excellent tends to move  
through the introductory material at a rapid pace.  You will need to  
have a good understanding of things like conditional probability.  
There are other books which may be better. Peter Lee "Bayesian  
Statistics: an introduction" is good on the basic theory but may be a  
bit light on the Gibbs sampler.  There are probably other good books,  
I'm not really a Bayesian so I don't know them off hand.
