My apologies to several of you who have sent comments and not seen them published...until now. I just noticed that 12 comments were caught in the spam filter. I should have noticed much earlier. If you had sent a comment and not seen it published, it may now be on the blog.
There also seem to be some comments about which I have received email notification but do not appear at the blog site in any part of it. A few great comments this week fall into that category. Google had an issue with its Blogger service for a day or two and that may explain what happened to them. I would ask those who sent a comment this week that has not been published to try again.
I genuinely appreciate all the readers of the blog. I especially find virtually all comments sent here to be advancing thinking and reasoning and have published about 95% of them.
