I thought I had fixed the problem with comments not showing on this site, but they are still not showing up. This morning I was reading through a copy of "The Liberal Drift of History" that I had copied off the site and pasted into a Word document. At the end, I found 2 wonderful comments. Amazing to me that I can copy and paste them when they don't show up on the site, and the Comments manager keeps informing me there are 0 commments. I will keep trying to fix the problem.
In the meantime, to all of you who have tried to post comments and gotten no response, I will also be working on copying and pasting and READING. This post will likely be continued as I go through that process. Thank you so much.
