That’s better. A while back I noted that I’d lost patience with sock puppetry in the comments threads here. In case you notice anything missing, I just took a moment and cleared out all the comments from our main sock puppet visitor who goes by various names and genders but always sounds the same — shrill. Thanks to the convenience of the IP address, it’s a snap to do. As always, I don’t mind negative comments — as demonstrated by the endearing and tireless Gabriel Hanna whom readers of the comments box will know well. Carry on.
