I'm going to try to enable the Blogger comments tonight.
Not that Haloscan's been bad to me, not at all..... but Haloscan comments are a bit fugitive. Every couple of months Haloscan hiccups, and all the comments are lost and gone forever --- and sometimes the comments are corrections and clarifications that truly need to stick around, or are truly insightful, and are missed when they evaporate. I'm hoping that the Blogger comments, imbedded as they are in the archival link, might be a bit more permanent.
But, of course, every time this semi-cyberilliterate does major template surgery, there's a risk of major damage, also, so ....remember me to God tonight.
See you on the other side.
