Comment count not updating

My commenting facility, Haloscan, is generally pretty good, but it’s been having troubles lately. A week or so ago, it chewed up some comments, and now the comment count is not updating. As I’ve said many times, the comments are, as often as not, the best part of the blog. There’s a good discussion of the Laffer curve going on in the post on “Identity crisis”, and the Monday message board is excellent as usual. Just for now, you’ll have to disregard the numbers and click on the comments box even if it says “No comments yet”
