What I am not so happy to report is this: I have had the Blogger commenting program installed on these computer for quite some time now, but as the counter always said 0 comments, I thought that no one was using Blogger for comments and consequently I never bothered to take a look and see what was actually in there. With this new Blogger program, I can see that a good many of you have indeed commented here; posts I thought were failures because no one said anything about them turn out to have generated veritable scads--well, maybe not scads, but more than I thought--of comments. If you are one of those commenters, I just want you to know that I am very sorry for not responding to your post and I thank you for coming here and reading The Passing Parade; in short, I was not ignoring you, I just didnt know that I had a commenting problem until this upgrade showed me the error of my ways. But now that I have the new Blogger/Google upgrade on my computer I am sure that this problem will not happen again. Once again, to all of you who thought I was giving you the cold shoulder, my profoundest apologies. As for the children's librarian's new breasts, this is a personal topic, and one I would feel uncomfortable going into any great detail about unless she said it was okay with her.
UPDATE: Again, my apologies; I am now reasonably certain that I have turned the comment moderation off and that you may use Blogger's commenting system to your heart's content. I will now go and get myself fitted for a suit of sackcloth and ashes.
