How we doin?

Ed Koch, the former mayor of New York City, was famous for walking around the busy streets of the city and asking anyone he ran into, "So, how am I doin'?" It was a way for him to get some unvarnished feedback (very unvarnished, probably), and stay in touch with those who didn't normally have access to him. He said it was an invaluable part of his time as mayor.

I was just remembering that one of the original purposes of this blog was to solicit feedback from CBA members - to ask "how we doin'?" to those who might not normally feel that they have a way to speak up. In reality, the blog has focused more on general Jewish issues, and less on CBA specific matters, but that doesn't mean that we have to completely give up on that goal! So, to all of the CBA members out there, let me ask you:

How we doin'?

If there is something going on here that you want to chime in about - either to support it, or to make suggestions - then please do! If the Web is good for anything, it's good for freedom of speech, so speak up!
