You can find my "normal" reaction to anonymous comments in a few places in this blog.
To make it very clear: If you hide you seem to have something to hide.
No further comment.

But I respond here because you and eventually others might misunderstand my posting of the talking points. I do that on the evening before I am on the radio station or sometimes very early in the morning of the day of the broadcast. This is to give my regular listeners a heads up on what we might be talking about.

If you or anyone else wants more information feel free to drop me an email; the email address in the left side bar of the blog.
