The main goal of the Gadfly blog is to provide a space for healthy public dialogue about issues of concern to Bethlehem, Pa., residents. All sides, all perspectives welcome.
For good examples of in-depth coverage of continuing serious issues, see the threads on candidates for election, Martin Tower, Parking, and on 2 W. Market St.
As context for and balance to the serious issues, we also have some fun stuff relating to Bethlehem as well.
