As you can see, this website is pretty new. But hopefully it will soon be nice and worn-in with lots of comments from readers like you. Interesting, funny, and gracious comments. Or any comment, really, except those nasty ones which seem to pop up whenever matters of faith are discussed.

Please let us know if something needs to be fixed or improved by commenting in the "Welcome" post, and thanks for bearing with us until things are sorted out.
