My apologies to anyone out there who attempted to leave a reply here and found himself/ herself deprived of doing so. A reader brought to my attention the fact that my website was not allowing comments. For some unknown reason the WordPress “allow people to post comments on new articles” thingamajig was left unchecked; thus, your intended feedback was unfortunately futile. Again, I apologize.
I’ve since corrected this and would welcome anything you presently/retrospectively have to say (your overwhelming praise as well as your scathing criticism) at your convenience. I don’t have tens of thousands of readers which is why your feedback is very valuable to me.
