As of this post, comments will be handled by Disqus (pronounced "discuss" -- just follow the link for a summary of what it does). There is currently no need to register, but you will need to provide a name and an e-mail address when posting. If you want, you can also join the Disqus community and get an "ID" there, which will help you track your own comments over time, making it easier to find what you (or someone else) said. I'm hoping it will also make it easier for me to keep track of some of the great comments you make.
So, try it out and let me know (in a comment of course!) what you think.
In the meantime, another real post is in the works: Weird Things Palin Said ... about her 5th pregnancy and birth.
