I've had to turn on (again) the thing that requires you to enter your email address before you can post a comment.  If you don't want me to know your real email address, just make one up.  It should still work.  Email address still do not come up for the public to see, once you type them in.

I've had to do this because of the obscene amounts of pornographic comment spam I've been getting lately.  Last night my mom called: "There's comments on your website!  About porn!"  And as soon as I delete them, they're back.  I'm hoping whatever is leaving them on my blog won't be able to come up with an email address, fake or not.

In other news, I'm feeling introspective today.  On my way back from court this morning, a homeless man yelled at me after I rebuffed his panhandeling efforts.  And what did he yell?

YOUR TIE DOES NOT MATCH YOUR SUIT!!!!

I was absolutely incensed!  It was a far cry from the homeless man I used to encounter every morning when I worked in Columbus.  He was a mental defective, but he'd always manage to slur out the words: "You look nice today."  Everyone always thought I was nuts because I'd always talk about how much I just LOVED that homeless man. 

But back to today.  I realized, as I was walking back, that he was right.  My tie did not match my suit!  Now it's slung neatly over my briefcase for me to take home at the end of the day.  And the earth's balance is restored.  Thanks homeless man!

UPDATE:  Well, this didn't even work for 24 hours.  I'm turning off all comments until I figure out another solution.  Email me at admin@nastybrutish-n-short.com if there is something you want to say.
