    1. Though this commenter’s feelings and assessments are completely understandable and, dare I say obvious, this comment is completely unacceptable for a professional blog like this. I want everyone to know that if similar comments come in, I will approve and post those too, just as further examples of the type of comments that will not be tolerated here. People need to learn and I’m here to teach.
