Sherrie here, wearing her Admin hat. We are having ongoing problems with spam, forcing us to close comments on older posts. In addition, some legitimate reader comments are ending up in the spam folder by accident. We're working with Typepad on a fix, but in the meantime, please let me know if you have comment problems. Just scroll all the way down to the very bottom of the left sidebar for my e-mail address, or send it to sholmes [at] holmesedit.com. I'm checking the spam folder daily, so if your comment ended up there, I'll liberate it. We're sorry for the inconvenience. Let's hope this problem gets fixed soon!
