Seeing blogs in a different light

-A A +A
By The Staff

Thank you for your editorial about blogs. Many blogs are valuable and useful. However, I believe the large number of anonymous posts on blogs are problematic at best.  

After considerable thought, I have decided that, as a candidate, I will not respond to anonymous questions or participate in blogs dominated by anonymous posts.  

At times there is some value in anonymous posting (e.g. protection of whistleblowers), but too many anonymous postings are hypercritical,  malicious and/or vicious.  

Such postings damage our community and interfere with civil discourse.  

My goals are improvement of Los Alamos and working with others to come up with solutions to community issues.

I encourage everyone to participate openly in the civil discourse that will permit the best ideas to surface and be implemented.
