Please leave comments... but understand that it's more likely to stay up if it's not recklessly antagonistic or completely off the point. Also, avoid getting into back-and-forth discussions with another commenter simply to have the last word--we tend to delete those comments. We definitely appreciate links to relevant outside articles, not so much the entire text of the article. We understand that not everyone wants to identify themselves, but if you often leave nasty/pointless comments and don't even include a genuine email address (which doesn't appear on the blog) where we can reach you, we'll ban you outright or delete your comments without hesitation.
If you have insights or recommendations, we'd love to hear from you! Also, we are always looking for guest bloggers. Write to editor Arun Venugopal of WNYC Radio: arunvenu[at]gmail.com
