I won’t make a habit of this, I promise: a Comment of the Day deserves its own post. However, the comments on the question of whether Mayor Buttigieg’s brother-in-law was crossing ethical lines or not by making an inter-family disagreement into media fodder have been uniformly excellent, and bundling the three of moderate length coming up makes sense to me.
Incidentally, the polling shows a real split of opinion, but 59% agree on the basic question: they feel the pastor was ethical. (I’m still not sure about that.)
Here’s the poll so far…

As the last (but not least) of the three COTD on the post, Rich in CT takes the podium. There were several other comments that deserved mention here, but what really put Rich ahead was his correct use of the Ethics Alarms term, Ethics Zugswang. It brought a tear to my eye.
