The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

APOLOGIES: Blogger has been after me, and probably you as well, for quite a while to switch over to their new way of doing things. This being a working weekend (an unfortunate event that occurs once every six weeks), I decided to go ahead and give the thing a try and see how I like it. I am happy to report that the switchover did not involve any complications and no animals were harmed during the making of this switch.

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.

    And I finally figured out how to use blogger comments, although I will also use the Haloscan ones, just in case. No comment on the new breasts? Alas. Well, I hope they were for cosmetic, as opposed to medical, purposes, so to speak.
