"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Why, exactly?

I have over 16,000 spam comments to delete. I'm doing it one at a time. Because I'm not anxious  to be the subject of a grannie joke. 

Grandparents have lots of opportunity to make fun of grandchild silliness but we don't.  Because we won't  do anything to damage their confidence in themselves. We know life is tough enough without  grandparents making jokes about being young and foolish. 

Anyway, removing the comment was a mistake . I'm  tapping so often on delete, one at a time, I did it before I realized I was on the published comment page. 

I hoped it wouldn't be noticed. Because I don't know how to put it back. 

That's a long way of saying.... Sorry
