In case any of you valued readers did not see my previous comment about this, I want to reiterate how much I value your many comments here — and that I continue to have trouble keeping up with them, with acknowledging and responding to them. I have several projects on my desk right now, and am juggling this against that.
Please know how much I appreciate your comments, even when I don't reply to them. I have occasionally responded to a comment in the past week when it seemed important for me to do that. This does not mean that I don't value all of your comments! I do sometimes think, too, that it may be better for me to be less intrusive in conversations here. You do a very good job of talking among yourselves and probably don't need my nannying presence hovering in your good conversations.
