Longtime readers of FrontBurner will know the name Bethany Anderson (or, simply, Bethany). Back before we shut off comments, she was the most commenterest of all commenters (in my estimation). She left us for several reasons, one of which was the vitriol in our comments section. That vitriol led us to shut down our comments — and now moderate them.
I don’t know why this took us so long. But we finally up and invited Bethany to be a regular contributor. Her first post went up a few hours ago. Please join me in welcoming her.
