Bainbridge Islander on Facebook

Like everything and everyone else (including your grandma and your five-year-old niece), the Bainbridge Islander is now on Facebook.

Unlike this blog, which gets updated once or twice a week (or month), our Facebook page has news updates, links, photos and non-anonymous reader discussions about all things Bainbridge each and every day (except on weekends, and sometimes not on Fridays or when we’re really busy on deadlines).

Besides, how else are you going to know what that chemistry class guy thinks about the chicken teriyaki salad he just ate?

The blotter is below.
