I apologize to everyone who posted comments on my last few posts, but who hasn’t seen their comments appear on the site. As I’ve often noted here, I have to approve each comment, because of the vast — truly unspeakable! — amount of spam that arrives. And since I like to reply to comments, I usually wait to post comments until I have time for the replies. Now, though, things have gotten out of hand, and I have a backlog. I do apologize, and the neglected comments (for which I’m grateful) will be posted shortly.
