LiveJournal Notification Issues

Just a note to folks who read my LiveJournal: I haven't been receiving email notifications for a few days, which means I haven't been notified immediately when comments appeared in my last post, Brookline Patch Column: Girls Can Be Astronauts, Too.

There has been some respectful discussion and respectful disagreement in the comments, and I appreciate the respect a lot. In case your notifications are also not showing up, you might want to check to see if I've replied to anything you've said.

Comments

A slightly-related anecdote comes to mind:
I have a friend who wanted to become an astronaut. She was talked out of it, I don't know the details of why, and now she is a nurse (a profession to which everyone who knows her agrees she is eminently well suited). Anyway, last year while she was expecting her first baby and before she knew what the gender would be, she chose rocket ships as the theme for the baby's bedroom. Someone (I can only assume someone who doesn't know her very well) had the nerve to say, "What if it's a girl?"
That's exactly the way it happened to me. The nurse had a knee-jerk reaction regarding the costumes and girls.
