Thanks for the column on WOM. WOM is something I look at every day. To say I look forward to it would be an exaggeration. I am usually disappointed at the topics the contributors choose. But I recognize it as a necessary evil. If we are going to live as a community, it is important to know what our fellow citizens are thinking about. I think the Empire or Juneau Web forums would be superior alternatives to the WOM. Unfortunately, they are not getting a lot of use so WOM it must be until everyone is online.
