One of my favorite bloggers, Scott Long; a veteran comedian in the Windy City, posted an interesting query as part of a series that he calls "Please Explain" in which he wonders why certain issues are popular beyond common sense. I've responded on several of his issues before, but this is the first one after having created this blog, so I'd like to share my thoughts on this particular issue at his site. I admire Scott for his thoughtful candor, and though I disagree with him sometimes, I have tremendous respect for him, which I'm sure he is well aware of.
My comment appears as No. 14 >;)
