Following the example of other blogs, I decided to have an open forum. Visitors may sound off here on any topic of interest to them. Any comment may -- with the approval of its author -- be selected for a new post. I think that an open forum is a better idea than having guest bloggers because (1) having guest bloggers could result in an excessive number of posts and (2) having guest bloggers discriminates against those not invited to be guest bloggers.
The rule against gossip about my private affairs applies here. However, because my obligation to answer any comment here is especially low, lies about objective facts will be allowed (yes, ViU, now is your big chance to say that Judge Jones told a newspaper that he was going to follow the law instead of telling them that the school board election results would not affect his decision).
