Suffering and Blog Commenting

I'm practically incapacitated by a debilitating head cold, and so I haven't had the energy or will to think about putting up some postings of substance. And I need to shake this thing before the weekend comes, when I'll be making a work-related trip to the DC area. As I rest in bed this morning, I'm putting up this posting just to say that I've switched off the "comment verification" feature in the comments section. Although it has been helpful in keeping out comment spam, it has been a burden and a disincentive for others to leave comments. I also think that the multiple verification steps have also deceived some into thinking they've posted a comment when, in fact, it didn't go through. So, in an effort to make things easier, I'm loosening up the comment process. But if comment spam becomes a problem once again, I'll probably reinstate it. Happy commenting!

I had that happen to me on a comment about Tennessee Democrats Mount a Coup (1/17).
If my scratchy throat persists I'll be making a pot of Sancocho de Gallina tomorrow. (Tienda La CosteƱa on Tulane has potential but is a long way from being Union Supermarket.)

Ricardo - Sorry about that. Hopefully the comment spammers won't start up their shenanigans so I can keep commenting easy and simple. I have been to Tienda La Costenya on Tulane yet, but I'll have to try it out soon.
