    Thanks to you, too, while we’re at it. FDL leadership is unparalleled covering so many issues.

    Just a thot or 2, not that I’m worthy of explaining anything transpiring right now:

    Work-load on many of these jobs must be enormous. I have no doubt burn-out is barely around the next corner for some of our finest here. I appreciate beyond measure the gift that is this blog, its many facets and faces, and especially the personal commitment by many whose roles are obvious, others maybe not so front-row, but important nonetheless.

    We who believe in what FDL stands for need to be willing to step back and allow them room to grow as they see fit.

    just my 2cts

    (((Jane!)))

    Great beginnings foretell great strides forward.

    Thank you for the update and intros, and, yes, we will stay tuned to all.

    Mornin’ Dragon.

    How many kittehs you save today?

    I hope you and they be well in these awful awe-full times.

    Sign me irrelevant, I guess.

    I was foolish enuf to think people would learn, way back when.

    now, not so much, or it won’t matter, or some such

    feels like just a twisted version of more trick-ill-downs for us t’weeners, and the lofty high-flyers don’t even see the clouds, much less the clowns.

    peace, dammit.

    sigh

  • I’m glad about this, but my initial reaction to your headline was deepdarkdepression (!)

    Leading in a recall ballot is, um, well, ok I guess. One of those “Yes” means “No” thingies. Lets hope for some fine campaigning and fine tuning in re ballot language overencumbrances.

    sign me paranoid to the end of times.

    what WOULD the Lake do without our scintillating minds?!

    hope you’re doing well also.

    don’t talk chocolate. i just lost another lb. today, but still not skinny.

    must go do exercises with our puddy cat. he does his own pushups & ab crunches, flopping around like… the sleek 18 lb. monster he’s become. we both could use the work, groan…

    I agree with you most of the way. I’ve never bothered with the HP comment threads, either to read or to add. At HP, I absolutely do NOT care one whit what the readers think. At the Lake, I DO. That’s where I pay attention to the residents.

    I find the chaff at HP, annoying as it can be, is fairly easy to pass through without much effort. I also don’t use most of the links.

    But HP is truly handy for allowing me to slide right into NYT and other sometimes haltingly accessible sites w/o cookies, and for cutting right to original content for a bunch of things I might not spot, would have missed. Whether it be news out of the San Diego Zoo, or Alexandria or Karo off across the big ponds. In essence, I use the big HP net to make sure I didn’t become sidetracked too quickly and miss something on my daily trip to the Lake.

    Yes. The Lake itself is harder for me to navigate now than it used to be. But it’s so valuable! the insight and wisdom shared here is incredibly compelling, but much more complicated in its multilevel approaches to coping with today’s world.

    Because of that, I find HP more useful now than I used to, by using it as a “location” beacon. Does that make any sense?

    Carry on!

    Hi eCAHN! Wouldn’t you at least admit using their link to click twd an original product of interest, once in a long while? Gimme a break. NYT doesn’t require cookies if I dance over that-a-way directly from the Lake. I’m just lazy enuf to like that.

    And yes, I do keep a wary eye out for scam/humbuggers. Always! I’m not too shy to use someone else’s muscle to help move molehills into better alignment so-as to learn more about my world.
