About the Moderation ...

I've hated to do it, but I've had to start moderating the comments -- not because of anything any of yinz have said, but because I've been getting a steady stream of Chinese-language (I think) "comments" that contain toxic links.  So don't take it personally, and I'll approve your comments soon as I can get to them.

Thanks, as always, for you readership and commentary.

And again I see a spot that reduces me to near-speechlessness.

Here's my question, though:  When a "dog hander" shows up in front of the cameras claiming to have made several thousand finds, why don't people apply the same measure of journalistic skepticism?

I'm Allergic

Check out this New York Times article.

Say what?  A lot of the food allergies people claim are either misinterpretations of what their docs said -- or outright misdiagnoses?

How could this be?

The next thing is they'll be telling me that many of the folks who claim allergies to my dogs are just people with phobias and other psychiatric malfunctions who're just using the suffering that people with real allergies have to live with -- often on a daily basis -- as a screen for their own need to control others!

Go figure.

'Nother radio spot

Sorry for not getting to this last week -- but I've done another environmental-commentary radio spot for The Allegheny Front.  This is a fun project!
