War in Richmond Blogdom

I’ve been away for a while busying myself with pursuits other than blogging. I must say it’s been quite pleasant breaking free from the blog rut. I have resisted both the urge to post, as well the temptation to surf other blog sites. It's been a literary cleansing of sorts. Well, the hiatus ended during a lesser moment yesterday when I paid a visit to good old Imagine my surprise when I found the top 10 lacking in its usual spate of political pontification and fundamentalist fodder. Instead, we have a new kid riding a wave of controversy to the top of the “who’s hot” list. Yep, old Jocelyn Hard Balls has managed to get River City blogging elitist’s collective panties in a large wad.

I can only imagine how delighted Ms./Mr. Hard Balls is to get all this attention. And I must ask: for what? Certainly not for humor or writing skill. Hopefully a lesson was learned by those so eager to be offended by the newcomer’s provocative attempts at humor. If one wants to get rid of a nuisance, simply ignore them.

And with that said I will end with a warm welcome to Jocelyn, whoever you are, and thanks for shaking up the status quo. Now go away.

I don't care if you think I'm funny. All you do is regurgitate the Internet. Stop trying to ride my heat.
