Rocky blog

Dartmouth's Rockefeller Center now has a blog, run at the moment by Ryan Abraham '04 and Susan Napier '04. The one thing keeping it back seems to be a reluctance on the part of the posters to venture their own opinions. I can understand this reluctance: even if Rocky issues a disclaimer distancing itself as an institution from whatever views are expressed on the blog, people will invariably make that connection. Especially if someone says something particularly controversial. Still, the disclaimer should be made, and the posters should express their opinions: it's the best way to get a discussion going. Simply posing questions is unlikely to be effective.
