I’m about to head off on my own vacation and Bookworm isn’t due back until Monday, so I don’t know how much blogging she’ll have a chance to do. Thanks to all of you who have chimed in on the discussions the last few weeks. The Bookwormroom readers really are the most intelligent, thoughtful collection of people I’ve had the privilege to interact with. I look forward to rejoining the discussion when I get back.
One last question for you to comment on while I’m gone. Bookworm asked whether the blogs served a useful purpose and most of you assured her that this one does. Several people commented, quite correctly, that we need a greater diversity of opinions here to make the conversation even more worthwhile. So, what can we do to encourage our friends on the left to join the discussion? We can’t learn from each other unless we talk with each other.
