Our staff writers should feel free to take a pro and con with any issue and write an editorial to support opposing sides of the same issue. That would make for great reading and lots of responses, I'm sure.
I think the Smack-Off is necessary because I'm seeing a lot of members forgetting to have fun and take things a bit too personally. We're not here to run opposing opinions off of the board... we need to welcome them in.
Call it from Heaven Chick.
