Congratulations should go to all Chatham Chatlist members

Pittsboro, NC - I'd like to point out that at least equal, if not more, congratulations should go to all of us for this. Gene Galin does an amazing job maintaining this mess (and what a great mess it is) and certainly deserves heaps of praise for running, maintaining and providing this online town hall, or market square, or bar room, or however you view it.

However, I think congratulations are also in order and well deserved for each and every member of this list, both current and future. Without the wide variety of opinion, knowledge and experience that each member brings to this, our little online Chatham County, the list would never have reached this kind of success.

Think how many times you've gotten help or an answer to a question, or bought or sold or bartered for something here.

Think how many people in need have been helped by people like Mark, who, despite being of humble means still manages to do what he can to help out his neighbors and others in need. Or Lee Pollard, who donates computers to needy families so that their children will have a better chance at a prosperous future, Or any of the other many selfless acts that are carried out here almost daily.

I'd even say think of the entertainment value you get during Chatham election seasons and during other times of debate.

The point is, I think we ALL should be proud of this list, and what's been accomplished. And we should all congratulate each other for bringing something different to the group, and making this the dynamic environment it has been and will continue to be.
