No comment?

Thanks to all those who’ve commented so far, or tried to comment. The software here is a little finicky. Seems not to like certain characters, chopping off your comments mid-sentence.  Also doesn’t like certain words, so that you actually can’t mention "homosexuality" in responding to Woodson’s book, below.  Thanks for sticking with it, and finding creative ways to make your points. 

And speaking of comments, check out this teacher’s reply to Silvey’s article. Thanks to Monica for finding it!
