We occasionally blog about non-local issues here on LoGroNo, as we’ve learned that many of our site visitors like to discuss them A) with local people/those they know; and B) in a climate of civility that exists here in part because of our Discussion Guidelines that we enforce.
Over the next few days, I’ll blog about some hot topics that go beyond Northfield: war, climate change, health care and maybe more. Here’s a look back at some of the national and international issues that have drawn interest and the number of comments attached:
- DNC and the RNC: the good, the bad, the ugly (1620)
- How atheist-friendly is Northfield? (also, religious vs. legal views on marital rights) (1437)
- Presidential election 2008: candidates, campaigns, issues (896)
- Our nation’s financial crisis (660)
- How would you balance the State’s short- and long-term budget problem? (406)
- McCain was right. The surge worked. The war in Iraq is over. We won. Now what? (335)
