Congratulations to Sue Conner: her comment was our 8000th. Less than a year ago we were celebrating our 6000th comment. This is heartwarming for those of us who post to Slaw: your comments, whatever their complexion, are our rewards, and you’ve been bountiful.
But. There are those who lurk, those whose fingers hesitate uncertainly over mouse or keyboard, debating whether to send us their thoughts. You know who you are. Hesitate no longer. Talk to us, and you’ll see that it turns into a conversation. We’re a friendly group here, and we try to be interesting and accurate; your comments help keep us on both paths (not always at once, it is true).
So thanks for what you’ve given us so far. And thanks for what we know will come . . . soon.
