HBO — To JBelle RE: Blog’s Gen-Xers

JBelle: I really enjoy reading the GenX and GenY people on this board. Just how the heck did you get them to come around and stay? Ryan Hill is sooo feisty; I wish he'd come back.

DFO: Mebbe we should ask them why they hang out here. I'm not sure -- other than their opinions are respected and enjoyed by most. I enjoyed the long abortion thread because the twentysomethings took the lead and tossed in some unpredictable things on Tuesday before giving way to the usual suspects who also had some interesting things to say Wednesday. Mebbe they hang out here because HBO provides a forum to talk things through and to ask questions that middle-agers seem to skip over. As far as Ryan Hill goes, he has been MIA since he got appointed to the CDA P&Z commission. Also, MikeK has reduced his posting on HBO since he got elected to the City Council. Seems folks get circumspect when they begin making friends in high places. In the future, I may have to require good commenters to sign a form promising they won't run for political office or become too involved in the system.
