This is why I love your blog. You start by relating an anecdote about an angry Sarah Palin, and by the end of the discussion, you have me buying Robert Frost collections on Amazon. The input from readers around the world with incredible knowledge and perspective give every subject such complexity and richness. And the curated emails are 1000% better than any strand of repetitive, anonymous comments.
Please stick with this format forever!
We will. It's simple really. Instead of a computer algorithm and message boards, we have emails and we read them and edit them and try to make it all connect together. This has evolved as the Dish has grown and matured. And with each improvisation, we find new challenges. One thing we hope to do soon is to find a place on the page where you can easily read entire threads from beginning to end. We're very close to adding new staffers to help us do this.
What it really means is that this is your blog as much as ours. From Window Views to personal tales and theological and spiritual discussion, the content on this blog is now increasingly generated by you and filtered through the pre-frontal cortex of me and the sous-chefs.
