Fellow POVers, I have to apologize for not being able to contribute much in the way of writing lately. With this being the first holiday season after our son’s death you can imagine that I’ve other priorities right now. Thanks for understanding and let’s give Mike and Rich major kudos for taking up the slack.
On another note, I know we have strict commenting standards on the POV and very few comments get held by WordPress for moderation – good for you all. However, after getting feedback from a few readers I’ll ask commenters to refrain from using words and phrases that, in this day and age, are demeaning to others.
“Midget” and “Retard(ed)” are but two and I’ll ask that commenters acknowledge and understand that some readers and commenters do have children, or other friends and relatives, with dwarfism and sever special needs. Please don’t use those words or any other words or phrases that are hurtful to others.
Is this political correctness? I don’t really care, but to proof read closely what you are putting up in the comments section is certainly the correct and civil thing to do…and civility has been what separates The Pitt POV from other blogs – hasn’t it?
Thanks for everything and especially thanks to Rich and Mike for their sterling writing and dedication to this venue.
