I'm still not sure how I should go about amending these posts. I know some people are purists, and don't believe in touching the original post. I personally don't have a problem with it.

But this is another link about the same story. I like the idea of using the Comments section as a kind of conversation about the story, so as the Blogmaster I offer the following link to enrich the above story.
