I am going to have to moderate comments for a while, the comments are being over-run with spam. Sorry. For right now, I will only moderate comments on posts over a day old. I wish Google would have an option to exclude comments with html links, that would help a lot I think.
Also, there have been a number of good, thoughtful comments recently that I never got a chance to respond to due to some unforeseen circumstances, and for that I apologize. Please don't stop, I value your comments!
