First, thanks to those who participated in Wednesday’s “All To The Good” constructive debate. I do believe we have shown that civil discussion and dialogue is possible, once folks decide to stay on the high road. That means there is hope for the next generation.
The world is constantly changing, and so far as I can tell it’s both for the bad, and for the good. We always seem to be in some degree of peril, but we also see brave, noble, and ingenious ways suggested to solve problems and make life better. Predictions that newspapers and broadcast news are going the way of the polyester leisure suit are off the mark, but it is certain that online analysis and forums are coming into broader participation and authority. It’s up to us all to lay a strong foundation, on noble principle and intelligent design.
