Blogger, the platform which hosts this blog, has been down for the past day - day and a half. We have lost posts and comments. If you see something of your missing, please duplicate it here if you can.
Let me emphasize this was a blogger / google problem, not an editorial or administrative action on our part. But our apoligies in any case, as we regret the inconvenience to our readers.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
