So far there have only been two posted responses to my "Local View" submission, "Give Governance a Chance". One simply was "Well stated." The other was a long paragraph about living at the end of a mile-long private road and not worrying about getting cholera. The Like or Dislikes were 10-2 and 2-11, respectively.
I haven't been around town since it was published, but four acquaintances told me that they liked it, as well as my two adult children (of course).
"Give Conservatives a Chance" has over thirty comments, including replies and replies to replies. I didn't bother reading most of them, being "same old, same old" regardless of the "side" taken.
