Support the commentathon (today only).

The blog is hosting a commentathon today to support the work of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, which provides education and low-cost or free mammograms for low-income women. Donors have made pledges to NBCF based on how many comments are received on the April 1st post. At the time of this writing, there are 142 comments. They need at least 1500 comments to receive all of the $6000 that is pledged. Please stop by, offer a comment and support this good work.
