Over the years, I have prided myself on responding to most comments with an email to the commentator.

However, this month I have fallen down on the job, and I apologize.

Several of my recent posts have garnered many, many comments, and I’ve just been a bit overwhelmed.  I certainly appreciate and learn from them, as do readers of this blog.   Between blog/book-manuscript/magazine article- writing; teaching; dealing with some School District issues (which I’ll be writing about Tuesday); family time, and playing basketball, things have been quite hectic.

Soon, I hope to get back to my usual practice of responding to people who are gracious enough to take the time to respond to blog posts.
