Before we begin the evening's blogging, an apology. Several comments to this site over the past few months were classified as "junk comments" by the UThink system's overaggressive anti-comment spam features. I didn't notice them until just now, as the system doesn't notify me when it has "junked" a comment. To those of you whose comments were affected, I apologize, and I will promise that I will check more often to resolve this problem.
I appreciate all the comments and debate that have been left on this site, and, even though I don't respond as often as I should, I do listen to your thoughts, suggestions, and arguments. Keep reading and responding with your own thoughts!
