Thanks, as always, to those of you who post comments to The Musings. For some reason, new comments may not be appearing in the comment counter, so if you've posted one recently and it hasn't shown up yet, don't worry--it's still there; it's just not visible unless you actually go to the step where you would post a new comment. I've notified Blogger about the problem, and hopefully it'll be resolved soon. (It's not just here; I've noticed it on Shawn's blog as well.)
UPDATE: My phantom comments returned as soon as I republished, so maybe that's the secret.
