For the record, I did not refuse to publish any comments during this period, so if your comment did not show up, blame a TypePad glitch, not me.
I am sure everyone now understands the polite, respectful, non-combative tone that I hope for with this blog. I'm not a fan of the modern culture of angry shouting epitomized by cable news shows. I like quiet, courteous discourse that treats all opinions* with respect.

In other news, I'm currently rereading Peter Fenwick's The Truth in the Light, a very enjoyable overview of NDEs. Most of the cases he cites are anecdotal, having been reported some time -- even decades -- after the fact, but they are still of considerable interest.
