Ya think it will ever stop raining?

A big thank you goes out to everyone who dropped by the website this week to add encouragement, support and, yes, criticism, too. And thanks for helping to spread the word about is an independent, hands-on site, and we couldn’t possibly cover the wide, wonderful scope of offerings around town without a dedicated and devoted bunch of wonderful writers, photographers, artists, tipsters and other assorted enablers who continually enrich us all with their contributions. So a big salute goes out to this week’s community contributors:

Rudy Lu
Jon N. Spector
Larry Murray
Timothy Reidy
Gail Burns
