The blog ate some bad spinach or something. Malfunction!
Seems something is amiss with the comments, with both your ability to leave them, mine to respond to them and whatnot. I believe that the anonymous and name/url comment function still works though, oddly enough. Sorry for this bug. We do value the comment convos here. Blogger is aware of the problem. Hopefully will be resolved soon. Unleash your anonymous personae in the meantime.
UPDATE: appears to be working again if a little wonky/unpredictable. Never eat spinach unless your name is Popeye.
