Tom Ryan, late of the Harvest Moon (and multiple marriages) promised payback when I put a copy of his email tabloid, The Floyd Enquirer, on-line a few issues back. Tom is our kind of rabble rouser and a giftted satirical writer who decided it was time to comment on local bloggers.
Bloggers, The Scourge of the Internet
A friend recently put “The Floyd Enquirer” on their blog site and, as recompense, I told them I’d return the “favor”. Admittedly I don’t comprehend blogging. In my tabloid I dump my angst & issues on a small unsuspecting audience……….. but bloggers invite active participation. It reeks of socialism or some weird performance art. Over a glass of wine, I realized that one of us is involved in fornication while the other is, well, typing with one hand…….. just can’t figure out who’s doing what to whom. Anyway, I invite you to visit a few of our local blog sites. To give you a measure of their “warm & fuzzy quotient”, I’ve rated the sites using an easy to comprehend system:
“The Cute Puppy Rating System”
Colleen Redman: she hugs the puppy, kisses it on the nose & is sad if she has to discipline it by shaking her finger at it. www.looseleafnotes.com
Fred First: he hugs the puppy, scratches it behind the ear & frames it in a Norman Rockwell painting. www.fragmentsfromfloyd.com
David St. Lawrence: he hugs the puppy but only after teaching it to sit in an authoritative voice…… www.making-ripples.com
Doug Thompson: well….. Doug, he strangles the puppy & then eats its liver. www.blueridgemuse.com
He forgot to add that I prefer my doggy livers with some fava beans and a nice (non-alcoholic) Chianti (with apologies to Hannibal Lecter).
