The response to yesterday's post was gratifying. Thanks. I got about ten e-mails, all of which I'll respond to soon. There's a baseball weblog I read pretty often, and the author gets more readers than I do, but not a ton more, maybe 30% more, and he's said a number of times that he doesn't reply to all of his e-mail. That doesn't seem right. Someone takes the time to write to you, because the words you've written have somehow struck a chord or made someone angry or just made someone feel something -- they deserve a reply, and, at least for me, I want to reply. It's one of the things that makes this weblog stuff cool. It's part of why I don't have comments enabled. I think comments encourage a different kind of interaction, and discourage the more personal interaction that e-mails enable. But this is a digression. Just wanted to say thanks.
