As addressed in my letter here, unfortunately, due to a career change, The Elephant in the Room blog has undergone some changes as well. Most noticeably is the lack of daily updates and Morning Headlines posts. As time goes on, things do change, but my goal with the blog is to ensure it changes as little as possible with respect to the amount of civil debate and information passing that occurs.
In the letter linked above, I tossed around the idea of opening up weekly news headline and debate topic forums so that the debate about relevant issues continues. Because of the nature of my new job, I'm unable to post daily headlines posts as I arrive at work. These posts have served as a way of fostering spirited, civil debate relating to relevant current events, and I think those things are the "bread and butter" of the blog. I truly hope they can continue at a high level.
So here we are: the first round of the weekly open forum. I'll try my best to post this on Sunday night or Monday morning each week, and hopefully, if people feel so inclined, they will come here with whatever news subjects, links, headlines, stories, and other topics in general (it doesn't have to be solely what's going on in the news) they'd like to debate. After a few weeks of this, we can all look at how it has gone in addition to looking at what tweaks need to be made. Post whatever you wish in the comments section below, and reply to other people's posts as well. I hope this works out! Thank you for understanding :-).
