Just a few housekeeping notes with plenty of gentle, loving scolding all around:
Jeez, I leave for 36 hours and there's dishes in the sink, candy corn stuck all over the carpet, posts in moderation and open divs. You kids are gonna be the death of me.
Fellow bloggers: Close those divs! The use of the "div" element is as follows (with all this in angle brackets):
div align="center" - followed by - /div
If that div isn't closed, the whole page gets goofy.
Also, once you close the div align="center", the text automatically goes back to left alignment. No div needed.
Also, please try to check "junk comments" in the admin screen periodically - this should make it clear when something happens like Corey Stewart's comments getting held up. If you're not able to unjunk them please let me know.
Jonathan: Sorry your posts keep getting held for moderation - but 99% of these spam filter problems can be avoided by not using the html tags to post links in comments. As explained in this post.
In a comment, instead of making "oops" a hyperlink, you can just put "oops" with the actual link address below like this
In a comment, that will automatically post as a hyperlink.
Also, in the same thread, Jonathan asked "Joe, what was it that you said about Ann Coulter being hot?"
All I can say is, I'm not sure what you meant by the question - but tread very carefully around the issue of Ann Coulter's incredible hotness, good sir.
Also in that thread, David asks with regard to the men who realize the girl they're admiring on the beach is actually 13 years old, "And what does it say about Adams that he doesn't question the entitlement of men to look at women that way?"
David, I think that's just what Adams IS doing. He's not holding the men up as positive examples at all. Anyone reading the column would probably focus on the fact the men felt very embarrassed when they saw the girl up close and realized her age.
And regarding the observation "the 'great Americans' over here at Town Hall seem to be in hiding. If I engaged in that much name calling, artifice, and just plain meanness towards decent and virtuous people, I'd probably hide too."
I apologize, first, to Ann Coulter, that I cannot be here 24 hours a day to defend her. But also to our visitors. Besides work, I have a few other projects that keep me wrapped up for days at a time. Our home Internet access is Verizon "high speed" DSL, which in my neighborhood is slow as molasses in January, so popping in to check on the blog can be a very time consuming ordeal. Sometimes I don't get to it until late at night.
Meanness towards the decent and virtuous would never send me into hiding; as a conservative, it's what I live for. One of my infrequent sunshine-and-daisies posts would more likely have me crawling under a rock for a spell.
