I came here when I was a yoof, and in the last 16 years my appreciation of presentation and love of news/politics in general have been a self-perpetuating cycle. I'd go home and watch the news so that I could see the countdown! That is to say that I don't think I would be as informed an adult as I am now, if I hadn't been spurred on in part by this forum. I probably haven't contributed much in my 911 posts, certainly the early ones which seem to be rota/request focused (
) but I've really appreciated the insight of many of my fellow contributors - thank you!
