A Note to Readers

Starting today, the character limit on comments will be reduced from 5,000 to 2,000 characters. The shorter length will allow for an improved experience for commenters and readers alike. As always, we encourage you to share your opinions and reactions.

Got something to say about it? We encourage your mellifluous, sesquipedalian musings here.
