    I was just getting ready to Twitter the 81 story. Well done, Deona! (But were those the best photos???) I also enjoyed the article and accompanying old photos about downtown Harrisonburg.

    Hey! I’m quoted! Now I’m a famous…pseudonym. Sigh.

    Nice article. I think the author presented the blog very accurately, which of course means favorably. Kudos all around.

    I believe the essence of hburgnews.com is translated well in this old dead media form. Nice forshadowing of future media, like receiveing our info via Waffle House napkins. Oh well. So this cruise really sucked then?

    Emmy brought me a copy over first thing this morning, but I haven’t gotten any further than the front page yet. We are all proud of you Brent. Bet Myron is green with jealousy lol!
    Sorry, no comparison between the 2 blogs….
