I think this is important. We all need to participate, tell everyone you know. Send them there to comment, ask questions and participate. I have been blogging only a short time and I couldn't anticipate the elation I felt on my receiving my first comment. It is an endorphin high. It is intoxicating and also isolating. I feel isolated enough.
I have my point of view and I'm sure you do to. I beg each of you to express your opinions there in forceful, respectful, coherent comment. Principled debate of the issues facing us is a powerful tool.
At the present time the forums are virtually barren.
These forums have the potential to become a major engine of civic participation the re-population is important, but it is an interactive engine and needs interaction.
Thanks to the Third Battle of New Orleans for bringing this site to my attention.
