Just an FYI that I've changed the settings on my blog to require users to log in before leaving a comment. This was a necessary change because of one sad, lonely individual who has a problem with my writings and has persisted in anonymous "drive-by" commenting. I find this type of behavior cowardly and tiresome, so I've turned off anonymous comments.
I would still like very much to hear your thoughts, but please be a man (or woman) about it and put your name by your thoughts. I'm happy to engage anyone in discussion about my postings but I have to know who you are to do so.
I hope this doesn't discourage too many of you from commenting.
