Dear Readers,

I’m traveling for a few weeks (taking care of my Mom after some shoulder surgery), and am hoping you'll indulge me with a slight departure from the normal routine. Since the inception of the Wednesday Wisdom column in April of 2008, the RBC community has argued, discussed, and enjoyed a wide variety of perspectives on a surprising variety of questions. Here’s a look back at the entertaining, brilliant, and sometimes nonsensical interaction that can happen when a community embraces open dialogue. I give both readers and commenters my heartfelt thanks for taking part in the fun!

Thanks, Rayanne -- high praise coming from the woman who posts great content like the Energizer Bunny!

Mom came through the surgery with flying colors, and coffee sounds fabulous. We're on the same coast, pick your favorite day!
