Jerri-Lynn right here. Some readers is likely to be confused by the obvious contradiction between Sunday’s post announcing my impending retirement and the looks of my by-line right here right now. The reason: I’m certainly retiring, however not ’til the tip of this week. Earlier than then, I’ll be posting a bit right now and extra on Thursday, and launching a farewell put up as quickly as I end writing it.
Earlier than then, I need to inform readers how a lot I appreciated the numerous sort feedback they posted in response to Sunday’s announcement. There’s no higher feeling a author can have than to listen to from her readers that they had been touched by – or discovered from her writing. And that’s particularly so when the viewers is the NC commentariat – the very best commentariat. It’s been such a privilege to jot down for you.
Thanks a lot!
Lambert and I, and plenty of readers, agree that Ukraine has prompted the worst informational setting ever. We hope readers will collaborate in mitigating the fog of warfare — each actual fog and stage fog — in feedback. None of us want extra cheerleading and link-free repetition of memes; there are platforms for that. Low-value, link-free pom pom-wavers shall be summarily whacked.
And for many who are new right here, this isn’t a mere well mannered request. We’ve written website Insurance policies and people who remark have accepted these phrases. To stop having to resort to the nuclear possibility of shutting feedback down completely till extra sanity prevails, as we did through the 2015 Greek bailout negotiations and shortly after the 2020 election, we’re going to be ruthless about moderating and blacklisting offenders.
P.S. Additionally, earlier than additional stressing our already harassed moderators, learn our website insurance policies:
Please don’t write us to ask why a remark has not appeared. We would not have the bandwidth to research and reply. Utilizing the feedback part to complain about moderation choices/tripwires earns that commenter troll factors. Please don’t do it. These feedback can even be eliminated if we encounter them.

Antidote du Jour (Tracie H):
I paid a go to to the native nursery, Roger’s Gardens, earlier this month and naturally, although I used to be there with a good friend who was searching for vegetation, I had introduced my digicam alongside. Whereas she was busy trying one thing up on her cellphone, I had an opportunity to take just a few photographs of this strawberry tree. Whereas I used to be busy framing the colourful fruit, this candy Orange-crowned warbler popped in to feast on the considerable provide of aphids.
