"It wasn't a lie, it was ineptitude with insufficient cover." Don Draper
People just don't care about the sport or its origins. I've learned that painful lesson.It's a bit like chemistry and the general apathy people have.for it. I'm like don't you want to know the underlying physical makeup of things and they are like "no thanks" I'd rather stay ignorant.
People care about whatever meets their needs and agenda, with the "no thanks" I'd rather stay ignorant" response available in a variety of shades and styles. Yesterday I happened upon an interesting thread in the Mess o' Posts and Comments that made up the Old TY Big Tent back in the days when access was limited. I'd been looking in my email for a comment made about the sadness of losing a dog (and by inference, commenters) and found a link to a post there from 2014. Reading it seven years after it was written, I found it curious and affirming to look back and see how much of what was noted and commented on back then had played out over and over since, here and elsewhere. In keeping with the theme that some things are not as they seem and some things are.http://trooperyork.blogspot.com/2014/11/dog-photos-meade-doesnt-want-you-to-see.html
Interesting. Tim Burnett - there's a flash from the past. As for Mozart not liking flutes - well, who are you going to trust, Wolfie or Timmy?I am, as always, slow on the uptake, to the point of being oblivious and gullible, but aren't deborah and that cocksucker Meade both from Ohio? That makes me wonder...
Sadly, I think you guys are way off base about deborah. She had too intimate of a knowledge about growing up in Oceanside CA as a military brat-- a place where I lived for 17 years and still own a house -- to have been Althouse or Meade. The only other Althousians who had a connection to O'side were Inga and Internet Ronin.
Sadly, Internet ronin died several years ago. We did meet for coffee once in downtown Oceanside.
@MamaM: Your longstanding personal obsession with deborah reminds me of the media's current obsession with convincing Americans that Biden was fairly elected. It seems so damned important for them to convince us of something without allowing doubt. You are still convinced that deborah is/was a fake. This oddly mirrored in (time and intensity) Blake and Darcy's conviction that you were Meade or Althouse which I never bought for a second. I'll be seeing Darcy and her husband in a few weeks when I drive through Denver. I'll mention this all to her
Inga is someone capable of incredible malice and hurtfulness online. Most of her online Sybil's were pretty transparent.
Thankfully, I'm still free to hold my doubts and observations and you're still free to hold yours, chickelit, at least for a while. On or off base, that appears to be the nature of the situation here at Levity. In the thread at the link, the observations I made then left others to draw their own conclusions. From my perspective, what was noted seven years ago remained evident in the years and comments that followedWhatever mentions you think might fascinate Darcy and her husband in their new life together in Denver are yours to determine.
