In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Screwy Comments

Apologies to any and all who have tried to leave comments in the last hour or so. I just learned that the blog has decided to inform all would-be commenters that they aren't allowed to do so. Why it has decided to do this is beyond me. But it's a blog-glitch -- you haven't been banned.

With luck the comments will be working again in a short time. Thanks for your patience.

UPDATE: Comments are working again.

Does it work now?

Aha! Victory!

Still works, right?

And I had something very insightful, wise and humorous to say. Unfortunately, I've forgotten it by now.

Didn't Groucho say he wouldn't leave comments on a blog that would allow him to?

I haven't been banned? And I tried so hard.
