Just a brief housekeeping note: While I welcome comments on any of my posts, I would ask that you keep them respectful and in good charity. I reserve the right to delete any comments for any reason whatsoever I determine. I won’t allow people to use my site to perpetuate ad hominem attacks on others, especially when it regards personal interaction outside of my site. That may sound cryptic, but it refers to a comment posted yesterday by someone who had a problem with a person refered to in the post. And then another person criticized the first commenter. I deleted both. I’m not saying that I am above criticism and correction. In fact, this episode had nothing to do with criticism of me.
I prefer my blog to be a place of reasoned commentary, analysis, and discussion and this should be the last word on the matter. Thanks.
UPDATE: It seems some people are afraid I’m referring to them when I’m not. Let me just say that the incident had to do with my mention of Rod Dreher’s reflections on a Christmas concert in a park near Ground Zero. Enough said. We now return to our regular programming.
