Can't comment on an article? It's not you, it's us [Updated]

Editors have discovered that the comment function for articles on isn't working at the moment. In fact, the prompt to even submit a comment is missing. [Updated 3:25 p.m.: The comment function is working again.]

However, you still can make comments via the blogs.

So, for example, the election story at the top of is missing its comment function, but you can leave your thoughts on the other election items: Primary voters head for the polls in L.A., Five down-ticket races to watch in California and 12 states holding elections today -- all three of which are posts on blogs.
