Boca Buzz

Posted By Bocatribune On Monday, February 8th, 2016 With 2 Comments

Boca Buzz is a “community in conversation with itself,” to borrow the phrase of Pulitzer prize-winning journalist, Walter Lippmann. If you have a compelling thought, a question, a concern or a critique that you want to communicate anonymously to the people of Boca Raton, just submit it below. (Please note: your Buzz will be reviewed for compliance with submission rules.)

Your Buzz, positive or negative, will then be published to hundreds of thousands of readers via the Boca Raton Tribune’s weekly print edition and website.

In sharing your thoughts, you not only get something off your chest, you participate with thousands of Boca Raton citizens in the democratic process, the process that links us back to the very foundation of our exceptional experiment in representative democracy. Although Boca Buzz may often be messy in word and thought, when it’s true to its purpose, it stands as a forum unfiltered by the elite, by those in power, and by those responsible for the public business. Political correctness and fear of petty retribution all take a holiday on Boca Buzz, while the most vulnerable and powerless among us are given a megaphone. To read just one week’s crop of Boca Buzzes is to experience a broad range of human emotion and issues from life in our society.

You can view all Boca Buzzes here.
