Thank you very much for the kind words of encouragement many of you have left in the comments. They are truly appreciated, but it is time to move on. Recent articles are open for comments. Comments on the subject of the article are welcome–whether they agree or disagree. I would love to get a dialog started in the comments of articles. However, as much as I appreciate compliments and kudos, we do need to move past that. Any comments not relative to the subject of a recent article will not be posted. Please leave any related comment you would like on an article!
Until further notice, commenters must register–this is the result of being constantly spammed over the past week. After the spammers get bored and go away, I will take away the restriction. I’m sorry to have to do this, I enjoy the comments I get, even when I don’t post them.
