You know you have a good blog going on when folks get so carried away on the comment threads that you have let some steam off with an open thread. You'll notice I've never done that here (sniff, sniff). Anway, let some stream off yourself.
What I really hope this means is that the "blog-oh-sphere" in Olympia is turning a corner, that the online discussion actually means something here other than just people like me yelling into the wind. One city council member elect has gotten into the mix on Olyblog. I hope this grows.
