Welcome to "frankly." We support the responsible and frequent exercise of the First Amendment and purpose to provide an outlet for free, respectful, and non-violent personal expression. We hope to build a community of like minded individuals interested in smart and sometimes challenging conversation. It is our hope that "frankly" will provide a forum to practice and/or learn how to speak to one another respectfully ... even and especially when we don't agree. We believe that disagreement isn't an act of violence ... it's a fact of life. We hope that you'll join us in pursuit of building a community of thought leaders predicated upon respectful free expression in pursuit of true ideological tolerance.
