Comment is Free

I’ve got a comment piece in today’s Sun-Herald all about toilet paper, democracy, and why robust, vigorous debate in newspaper and opinion sites’ comment threads are actually a sign of a healthy polis.

Ironically, there is no facility to comment at the above link, so have at it here. And while it was written a while ago, it’s a nice rejoinder to Lizzy Farrelly’s attack yesterday on the “ignorant and heedless rabble” daring to have opinions different from her own.
