It’s hard to believe that another Christmas is almost come and gone and we’re still blogging away. Still being present on the Web is the best gift we could have asked for. We’re going to appeal to Hendersonians and Vancers one more time for some posts that reflect the holiday spirit. With that, we give you the open line.

So, you thought Home in Henderson was the death knell of American civilization? Here’s a little something we heard about on NPR on the way home from school that makes our operation look like a Hallmark card: www.mydeathspace.com. This site notes the deaths of www.myspace.com users. If this is the virtual tombstone, we prefer to be remembered with a few choice limericks.

Of the new Henderson City Council, this can be said for certain: the first full meeting flew by with only the slightest whiff of rancor. The spirit of cooperation seems to be cooperating nicely when it comes to discussion and voting. With that, we give you today’s open line.
