According to the folks at Typepad, where this blog resides, comments on this blog should be working and accessible now. According to them, the problem lies with Typekey (which handles those checkins for comments). They say "Readers may see a security warning message, they can go ahead and accept the warning and be able to bypass it to go back to your blog and leave a comment." They're still working on getting it set up, but for now, go ahead, click to accept the warning, and you'll be able to comment. Thanks for your patience!
