The jewlery store debate

I was pleased with KRBD's jewlery store initiative debate on Thursday. What I most appreciated was hearing it without histronics and insults or trumped-up charges. It is good to see that community disapproval seems to have cooled off the personal and nasty fight promised and started by at least some of the initiative opponents.

Thanks to Charley Arteaga and Charles Edwardson for giving us their well stated opposing views and philosophies upon which to decide our vote, but most of all for showing how to debate the question without creating enemies or trying to tear the community apart.
