Last night several days' worth (nearly a week) of blog posts were accidentally deleted from my blog. It will likely be impossible to recover or reconstitute them. I am stunned and saddened by this loss. My blog posts represent a good deal of work, and because they generally offer comment on events or ideas deemed significant enough to elicit a notice, I truly do feel this loss greatly.
Thank you for your interest in this blog. I am encouraged by what seems a growing readership.
