In all the kerfuffle around Google Reader going belly up, I managed to lose the feed for the comments for this blog. So I haven't been reading them, nor have I been responding to them. My abject and sincere apologies to those who have been ignored for the past month. I have resolved the problem (I hope).
Next problem is figuring out how to recreate the Memeroll, which is currently linked to GReader and will die in about 6 weeks. ...sigh
