I genuinely appreciate your efforts in providing this platform. At a time when so much media are dominated by very large very powerful interests, Front Porch Forum provides a very useful citizen-based platform.
In 1979, I was part of the first semi-official American delegation to the People’s Republic of China after we normalized relations. I was inspired by seeing thousands of Chinese standing 5-6 rows deep to read the message and grievances posted on Beijing’s Democracy Wall. Perhaps that was an early Chinese version of Front Porch Forum.
