    Good grief.

    There are 17 posts on the front page of the Bulldog right now.

    Lansdowne: 9
    Lebreton: 2
    Hockey: 2
    Canal: 1
    Other: 3

    Yes, Lansdowne is important. So is Lebreton. But honestly? Nothing about shootings / crime? Nothing on Diab? One post on zoning?

    I’m bored to tears. A little variety, please.

    Bob:

    Lansdowne and LeBreton are less sports-oriented than politics.

    We’re talking a major mistake at Lansdowne.

    As well, if you are bored with the mix, The Bulldog Forum is where you can put the provocative issues that you want to discuss here.

    You’ve got the topic button. Use it.

    Change the tenor. Debate. Get people interested in your topics.

    And for what it is worth, the readership is becoming consistently more solid throughout the month after the xmas break.

    Remember in the last year, Bulldog readership has tripled.

    So if you can triple it again with your provocative topics, feel free.

    cheers

    Bob:

    One other thing and you are not the big offender on this. In fact, exactly the opposite but I have been waiting for a chance to say this.

    The Bulldog doesn’t matter. It’s simply an instrument. What matters is public policy.

    The Bulldog is a facilitator, not the prime topic of discussion as it is for a few Bulldog commenters.

    Again what matters are the issues in the community. Not whether The Bulldog is doing this and doing that.

    In newspapers years ago, we generally declared a columnist dead when their topics consisted of “a funny thing happened in the newsroom today” or “my kids do the cutest things … here’s one.” They wanted to discuss things that weren’t the news. It’s lazy journalism.

    So commenters fixated on The Bulldog ignore the real issues outside of The Bulldog which take place in the community, country and world.

    Commenters who persist in making The Bulldog the prime topic of The Bulldog should be declared dead.

    It’s boring.

    cheers

    I will modestly point out that of the most recent 15 topics on the forum, excluding this one, four are mine. I’m happy to contribute there and will likely continue to, when the spirit moves.

    Bob:

    I can assure you my friend that the staff and management of The Bulldog appreciate your effort.

    For some reason or other, commenting on the Bulldog Forum has been lean since the holiday season.

    The folks, when I asked them about such a forum, were enthusiastic about it.

    Your agent put an enormous amount of work into creating this forum puppy. Sure would appreciate the Bulldog Commenting All-Stars to get involved again.

    I don’t doubt the Forum will go crazy as both elections get closer but there’s nothing like the present to get things rolling.

    I’m surprised that the city won’t see its investment realized at Lansdowne in 147 years. That’s a story.

    Might be some grist for a few comments one would think.

    Anyway Bob, know that your participation is appreciated.

    cheers and thx
