Commenting Policy

I would really rather not need one, but I think some guidance should be given.  Basically, if you wouldn’t want it splashed on the front page of the New York Times next to your picture and pertinent biographical details, sent directly to your grandma, or used against you in a court of law, don’t leave it here.  The exchange of ideas can be constructive without being rude.  I will use my discretion on deleting comments that are rude.
