That's why the blog is being started. We want to have a candid talk about race, a place where all of us can talk in an informal, but civil, and respectful way.For those tempted to interject an irreverent or, ahem, off-colored comment to the blog, the Post-Dispatch won't tolerate it.
We know by our online reader comments that almost any topic -- crime, politics, education -- can devolve into name calling, finger-pointing and out-of-bounds discussions. If that is your cup of tea, keep it out of the blog. That's not what we're after.Hmm, I wonder if that same rule applies with the daily's Barack Obama inauguration edition slated for Jan 21. For the low, low cost of $9.95 the paper is letting readers share their "thoughts and congratulations to this section that will be cherished for many years to come."
