PDX Pup: with the wide variety of topics presented here yesterday to comment on(war, developers' philanthropy/not-philanthropy, granny v. college ball player, etc.), many opted to comment on the celebutard thread. And I'm not saying it wasn't an interesting thread, because many of those comments were articulate and thoughtfully presented, and I agreed with many of the opinions; I'm saying it was interesting and a bit sad that it was the hot-topic du jour.
DFO: I'm occasionally amazed re: what topics take off here. Generally, I know when a post will attack the attention of HBOers. However, sometimes a good topic is ignored and an inconsequential one takes off. That's why I try to post a variety. Different strokes for different folks. If anyone has a formula for attracting and keeping the attention of Joe and Jane Average HBOer, please send it to me. I'm still trying to figure it out. Then, I have a short attention span, too.
