Last week’s most commented on Germantown stories

We like it when people are inspired to write comments to our stories.

We’d prefer it when those comments mention some brilliant stroke of journalism on our part, or something great in the community. But we’ll take it even if you have to point out our shortcomings – like my unfortunate transposition of the word “flagrantly” with “fragrantly” in a story about Germantown Settlement’s Emanuel Freeman failing to show for a court ordered deposition.

Mea culpa on that one, y’all.

And we love it when a piece sparks an actual conversation, like with Amy Z. Quinn’s treatment of the a zoning question that related to dollar stores and the Germantown development called Chelten Plaza.
