I've just discovered a glitch in blogger not notifying me of comments on posts. I think I've caught up and posted those comments that were not posted over the last few weeks/months. I apologize. I was not ignoring readers' comments and I was not deleting them. It's just that I wasn't aware of them.
Please keep reading and commenting. Your comment may not appear immediately but, if germane and civil, they will appear ASAP.
(Blogger has been rather buggy as of late which is one of the reason I hope to move to the new platform ASAP. Thanks for your patience!)
