  1. They’re letting that Etter man speak on the panel but no invite for moi? I’ll be there and I’m bringing my sour grapes. Just kidding 🙂 Great roster and sounds like a great event! See you all there!

  2. I have the flu and will not come and infect my fellow citizens, so let me shout out now…when someone does try to do something and help out, please acknowledge them with a smile and a thank you and an invitation to join in in the future. So far, my assesment for that sort of effort leaves a lot of room for improvement, though some people do that very nicely and beautifully.

  3. Oh, I should add that I am not saying I have to be thanked for everything I do, but I and I think others might like to know if the deed was well received, if it was needed and how it might help or be improved, stuff like that, you know, dialogue.

  4. This looks like a fun event. I wonder if they’ll decide to have just one ‘civil discourse’ blog and leave N.org as it is. Maybe we need just one talk-it-up in town, but it would be so fun to have good reads over at N.org… not to dis the current N.org content contributors, but I’d like to see more. 🙂
