I wish to thank all my readers for their interest in my blogs, and to all those who contribute comments offering their own thoughts and opinions. Regardless of your position on any issues, your input is always welcome, so long as it’s submitted with respect for me and for other commenters as well. As I’ve often said, I’m not always interested in singing to the choir. All voices are welcome.

I have the liberty of deleting comments with profanity or any other that I otherwise deem revolting or totally irrelevant. (Which I have done a very few times) There’s no point for that in these dialogue formats, no matter how passionate we feel about issues.

If you read the opening paragraph the Frankly Speaking Home Page, it states:

“…appreciate if responders would leave their names, city of residence and, if possible, e-mail address.”

This is not required, obviously. But at minimum, an e-mail address would enable me to make a private contact with a responder if I think it worth intervening. What is not welcome, are insults by those who hide behind anonymity.

Let’s not only cherish, but exercise the freedom of speech, while we still have it.

Thanks again.
