For those who didn't see the notice on Site Talk, we are asking people to take terrorism, patriotism, and all other post-disaster discussion to the Not About Food board. We're trying to gradually return to being a food site.
We will continue to allow urgent info re: volunteering, donating blood, etc (and the "chowhounds checking in" threads) on our regional boards for the immediate future, but we will begin vacuuming up non-emergency non-chow talk. So...if you'd like to continue the discussion, please take it to "Not About Food".
And if you'd like to discuss this posting, please do so on Site Talk. Let's keep this board chowcentric for those of us who are returning, hungry, to the site.
