    Bring back golo -- comment from "golo"

    GOLO was a social forum, and I enjoyed it, but it was a party that allowed you to bring your own bottle and I guess it was getting out of hand, especially with liability issues since WRAL was supposed to control it. What a great number of hits it had!

    WRAL is the best website, or at least my favorite, being a hometown site.
