ARLnow Weekend Discussion

View to Fairlington from the Windgate in autumn

So this the point at which we mention local events that are happening this weekend, possibly recap some of the past week’s big stories and encourage you to listen to our latest podcast (it was actually a really good one and is on track to being our most listened-to episode.)

This post usually wraps up with us encouraging you to discuss any topic of local interest. But let’s be honest: you’re going to be discussing Donald Trump, just like you (the commenters) did last week.

Here’s a request for our readers: please confine national political discussions to posts that actually mention national political things. We loosened our enforcement of that comment policy since the election, but will resume enforcing it soon. There are plenty of places to discuss the president-elect and his former electoral opponent, including articles we publish specifically regarding Trump and the election, but we don’t want to see substantive discussion of local issues drowned out by ongoing political bickering.

Thank you for your helping us to maintain (relatively) higher standards for our comment section than you might see on other news websites. Have a nice weekend.
