One of the strange little things in a cavalcade of strange little things that make CHS work is our community post section. Anybody can post to CHS — and people do, all the time. The best, most useful items will get promoted to the CHS homepage. The rest? They’re on the Internet! It’s kind of like a feed of Capitol Hill press releases — except there are mixed-in random flights of fancy like abbasolomon’s post about the potential for micro-radio stations on Capitol Hill. You can always find the latest community posts on the CHS homepage over on the right side below the weather box — or just visit here.
Below is a selection of recent CHS community posts that range from well done to, well, messy. Thanks everybody for being part of CHS.
