Let's talk about talking. The topic of last week's fire in Zebulon has spawned 24 responses from 15 unique users since April 18. The zoo crew of comment-makers was the usual mix of named and unnamed entities: Being positive, Brandon Hopkins, Chris, DJ, FYI, gen3fire, H2O, J.Boggs, John McAdams, Mike, Silver, Sizeup 101, Smitty, Wayne, wheeler. What was talked about? Quite a few things, and some topics having longer "legs" than others. In non-sequential order, they included:

Plus a couple deleted comments, which happens from time to time. What was learned, beyond good job done in Zebulon? Well, as we've long-demonstrated, the original topic often serves as a springboard. Some responses stay on topic, others veer other ways. Discourse stays pretty civil, though passion surfaces from time to time. e.g., Caps key. The "regulars" are quick to opine, and they're not necessarily sitting behind computers in Wake County. The lurkers-- those reading but not commenting-- surely number in the dozens. Maybe hundreds, and don't call me Shirley. They may have things to say later.
