Mailbag: How About An Anti-Anti?

Upclose: Same old, same old. Anti-abortion, anti-government, anti-gay, anti-growth. Can’t we come up with something new? I’m thinking it might be time to check out of here for a while.

John Austin: OK, how about anti-anti? How about a thread about something (anything) in our communities that we LIKE? For me, it’s a new public park, including a lake, where there was once a gravel pit. Or, the sight of litter brigades along our highways - volunteer or not. Anybody else have an anti-anti? Extra points for something unique to our communities.

TomT: I like a sunny spring day when all the ball fields and parks are full of soccer games, softball games, T-ball, etc. Families cheering on the sidelines and no one asking each other what their position is on anything. The people in this community have so much in common in spite of all the political differences.
