A general Water Cooler comment….

411 does a phenomenal job in this town, don’t we ALL agree??

I can only speak for myself, but I believe 411 covers an extraordinary array of stuff here. And offers us all, a great venue to vent, be smart, stupid, and everything else.

I’m not him/her, but I might be COMPLETELY burned-out, after a year of covering this completely crazy town….


So, I’m proposing that we make a way to more smartly (key word) contribute to 411…

(& hope this is okay, 411)

Throw out “assignments” and people here respond, start to help you out (responsibly), much more, w/this MAMMOTH, important effort you’ve launched….?

After all, we’re all reaping the benefits from all your hard work….

Can’t we start to reciprocate?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
