    Have changed. At first I came for the election horse race info and that's about it.  Later, I signed up and joined a few of the sub communities, believing this was some kind of virtual Alice's a restaurant  movement with fellow group W members trying to survive Presnit W with some sense of common grounding. For a while I came just for that comraderie and the great humor found during that era. That phase has waned for me.

    I lost interest during the vicious primary wars and found other smaller issues oriented blogs. I came back though for Occupy solidarity, thinking this place would organize as more than an election time ATM. I still come for the connections made in that phase. I still think if a new spark comes the light shine might show up here early.

    No matter what I always come here for some of the true original thinkers and excellent writers like LeftHandedMan up there, and Fish, and Dallasdoc, gjohnsit, KJG52 among many others. They never fail to provoke my brain cells. They make ideas start flowing. That is what I see as the continued use of Long form blogging, for me at least, ... The ideas.
