Many very nice people have written in asking when the comments will return to this blog.
I would very much like to bring the comments back -- I miss them and hated that I felt it necessary to close them down. But, to be honest about it, I have quite a few things going on and won't be able to read the comments with any regularity for the next few months, much less moderate them.
But I have been told by more than a few Brilliant Readers that they would be happy to moderate the comments if I will turn them back on. This seems like a plan that could work if people are serious about it. So here's what we will do: If you have interest in moderating the comments here, send an email here. And if we get a couple of people who are willing to do it, we'll try to open up the comments again.
