Into the Forums

The Xpress forums are a hotbed of discussion on all manner of topics — one where readers take the lead. Here’s a new weekly update on what you missed if you didn’t drop by.

To start, Xpress staffer Brian Postelle asked the curious question: Would you watch a Palin family reality show?

Forum regular Glolady isn’t wanting Bush out of office just yet — she wants to see him impeached first in Impeach or not to Impeach Bush?

Curious about Where to buy local/handmade for the holidays? Xpress A&E Reporter Alli Marshall has a few tips.

Poster Jason Bugg may be best known for his acerbic wit, but did you know he’s also a hockey fan? Sadly, his Carolina Hurricanes MEGATHREAD has been downgraded to a Carolina Tropical Storm MICROTHREAD due to low poster turnout. Maybe some local hockey fans can help?

As you may have heard, newspaper chains around the world are struggling to survive, thanks to the rise of the Web-based communications and the tanking economy. Are we starting to hear The Death Rattle of Print Journalism?

Few Xpress forum threads have quite the longevity of this one, which asks the eternal question, What song is stuck on your head today?

And speaking of music, the ongoing argument about local music promotion and performer payment continues in this deceptively named thread.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.
