I want to continue the lively debate on this blog, and I do value hearing from all of you. Gosh in the last few months, I've made some great contacts through this In This Moment.
However, I also believe that people should show at least a tiny bit of backbone and stand up for their opinions. Otherwise you get folks posting things like the first comment in this discussion of Kansas politics. The issue isn't hurt feelings, certainly not on my part, but I do believe that people should be accountable for their opinions.
Thus, the new rule of the game at In This Moment is that people must first register with Blogger in order to post a comment. Of course, you can all reach me directly with comments, news tips and blasts of indignation at my Hope & Politics address.
We'll see how this goes for a while. I hope you're all (yes, even the folks I disagree with) having a great holiday season.
