Village 14 Readers may find a new Newton blog interesting. The new blog asks its writers and those who respond to use their real names, to be polite and to be interesting, while removing innuendo and personal attacks from the inkwell’s arsenal. I am one of at least 20 Newton residents and business leaders who will be commenting on an assigned day each month (my date is the 18th, a number that translates to “life” in Hebrew). I gladly accepted with the caveat that bloggers of varied opinions be invited to be authors, assuring the founders that unopposed opinions would quickly become tedious. The blog opened this morning and, my hope is that both this new blog and Village 14 will thrive with reasoned arguments and good behavior. Try it out after you have voted! It’s NewtonForum.org
