New search widget

"Search Blog" in the navbar, up top, is not working. So I have added a search widget in the sidebar. Results from this are unreliable, but I suppose it's better than no search at all. The best for now is to use Google directly, with followed by the search term, e.g., antikythera. FWIW. Other Blogspot sites are afflicted by this, as well. It's not just me.

Update: But see above.

Ah, I wondered what was up with that. I couldn't find keywords that I was sure I'd posted about. Thanks for the info!

By the way, I ended up here by following your comment on Althouse. So, so very depressing, but so true: they can't stand all the freedom. You just can't let people, you know, say stuff, all uncontrolled. Why, it might be mean, or it might harm some defenseless consumer in some indefinable way! And goodness knows we can't have citizens saying stuff opposed to The One and his minions.

So let's shut it all down, is their approach.

Glad I could help out with the search problem. Though real help would involve fixing the darn bug. Can't do that from here. I can at least let you know that you are not imagining it, and are not the only one affected.

Nice dissection of that anonymous commenter, probably from Herb Kohl's office. I hope that Anon comes back to your site to see it. And that he/she does not have statutory backing to put you on a list of sites that need further investigation.
