Spyware in New England
When I started this blog a little over a year ago I wasn't quite sure how it would go but I was hopeful that it would open up a dialogue and community with readers of the News and of my cartoon, in particular. It, for the most part, has done that. I feel I'm getting to know you, and I hope, you are getting to know me a little better than just the daily cartoon in the paper and online. We've started a fantasy league for our blog, a cartoon contest, and I'm hoping many more "community" kinds of things in the future.
Lately, though, things here on the blog have turned a little weird. We have people posting under false identities, slurring other bloggers, and generally just messing up everyone elses day. Not sure why but it's happening. I don't want to make ground rules here because that just takes some of the fun out of things and makes me out to be crabbier than I really am. I didn't start this blog to wander the classroom with a ruler in hand ready to smack the first unruly brat to get out of line. I started the blog to communicate with you and you with each other. I hope that's the direction we will take. So please, be kind to each other here. I know you don't always aqree with my cartoons and that's great. Feel free to disagree. Just do it with dignity and class. And treat others here the same way. OK. Enough of the lecture.
Don't forget we have the Draw like Drew contest going on. Create your own sports cartoon. We'll post some of the finalists online and the winner will get a cartoon from me. The contest runs now until Oct 1. Submit your entires to sports@RockyMountainNews.com or fax it to 303-954-2602.
