Since it is apparently impossible for people to disagree on this blog anymore, I’d like all of you who think my post below was some declaration of war on Soonergrunt or a “slap in the face” to cease and desist. This is a weblog. If the front posters can’t fight when we disagree, wtf is the point. There clearly is no editorial direction here, as chaos abides on a daily basis.
One of the more irritating things to happen lately was Freddie flaming front pagers on his private site, when the whole point of front page status is to flame people here. I talked to him, and he told me he just didn’t want to stir up shit on the blog. I understand where he is coming from, but the entire point of an opinion blog is to stir up shit. If DougJ or Freddie or Sooner or ABL or Anne Laurie or Kay or Bernard or the others think I am being an idiot, they should let me know, and they have the real estate to do it! Put it here. I’ve got thick skin, and so does everyone else.
I just disagreed with Sooner, posted as much, and tomorrow, if I wake up and he has ripped my argument to shreds, well, I must have had a shitty argument.
Fewer cheerleaders. More football.
