The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Dead horse beaten; film at 11

Inasmuch as Nick Coleman works for a Minnesota paper and has bashed only one other state recently, there's always the question of why I, down here in Oklahoma City, should care.

Actually, it's a New Year's resolution: to enjoy more Schadenfreude. And besides, the Net has seen to it that no one is purely local anymore; this morning I received a letter from a Twin Cities reader pointing me to a correction run by the Strib regarding that infamous Coleman outburst. (Power Line, of course, has much more to say about it.) "It seems," said my correspondent, "he was so busy blustering he didn't get his facts straight concerning the history of his own newspaper."

Of course, this cuts both ways: if I screw up, the first person to tell me about it probably won't be someone living down the street.

Boy,all you guys on the "right" are really something! The vast right-wing mutual admiration society - congratulating each other on Coleman's "infamous outburst" and how you're going to take "malicious satisfaction in the misfortunes of others".....lovely bunch you all are!

Have a great day!

Gee, John.

How many people really were on the grassy knoll?

It's ALL a conspiracy, right?

I'm waiting for some mirror-image John to pop up somewhere and excoriate me for dumping on poor Tom DeLay.

Good things come to those who wait. :)

(Crap, on the other hand, you get right away.)

Oh, you lot are a supremely humouous bunch! I am *so totally* amused. It is all a vast conspiracy! LOL

nhoJ (that is *really* amusing!)

Urm. Do you consider an hour and a quarter "waiting" or "right away"?

Enquiring minds want to know. :)

"humouous"?

Quiet! John's hunting wabbits!

Wabbits? As in "bunnies"? Could "John" be John Edwards?
