For Dan and other bike riders — from NPR this morning:
Petersen is the iconoclastic founder of Rivendell Bicycle Works and the author of Just Ride, a new book that distills practical bike wisdom he has gleaned from years of riding and designing bikes. In it, he makes the case for putting comfort ahead of aerodynamics, and fun over efficiency.
“When asked what advice he would give to bike commuters, Petersen starts out with the basics.
“Wear the clothes that you’re going to wear at work,” he says. “Don’t dress up like an American Bike Geek just to ride a bicycle to work.”
“There shouldn’t be any debate at all,” Petersen says. “Riding a bicycle should be just a natural part of your life. It’s so easy. We are the only ones — ‘we,’ speaking as an American — we are generally the only ones who commute to work in racing clothing. Where is there room for debate about how ridiculous that is?”
Bob Marshall is a sorry excuse for a human being, much less one who represents other Virginians.
Stay tuned for Sunday’s column!
I’m hearing alot of crickets from the libs since it has been proven that no documentaion exists in any form showing that Elizabeth Warren is 1/32, 1/64th or 1/ 1,000,000,000th Cherokee. Partisanship is so blinding and the libs on this blog are proving it every day.
Maybe I missed this before, but I’m reading that the paper is no longer sponsoring Music for Americans, which it has been doing since 1976, and the event is in danger of folding even though Carilion is picking up some of the slack. I haven’t gone to it for years because we have our own neighborhood event, but it would be shame to lose this.
Doesn’t the Roanoke Times think that the July 4th event is worthy of sponsorship?
Is the RT making some sort of political statement by withdrawing funding?
OCCUPY Roanoke here’s your chance to show how much you love America.
Sponsor “Music for Americans”!
How do we stand on Suzie posts for the month? Has she managed to bankriupt the blog yet?
Sorry terps, but this website proves Warren’s NA cred beyond a shadow of a doubt. I hope that you stop making these baseless allegations about a fine American.
We just don’t care about what box Elizabeth Warren checked, Terps.
#4 terps posted, “I’m hearing alot of crickets from the libs since it has been proven that no documentaion exists in any form showing that Elizabeth Warren is 1/32,…”
You’ve beaten that dead horse – we simply removed the carcass and moved on…obsess much?
Terps needs professional help, this has gotten ridiculous.
She got caught cheating and you are looking the other way. Her case can no longer be defended. How can all of the lib attacks against Cuccinelli and Scott walker be taken seriously when you libs worship such a blatant cheater.
Terps, sometimes when you hear crickets, it is because you are alone in a dark place.
They lost, terps….
We are ALL 1/32 Indian!! bwahahahahahaha
I mean….those cheekbones….they’re so…uh…high…sky high cheekbones….surely she must be at least 1/64th? Is that enough to get a pastywhite Rutgers Law grad a teaching position at Harvard Law?
terps – when I was a young woman, my Grandmother told me that her family had a Native American bloodline – some NC Native American – and this she also told to her 9 children. They in turn, told their children, and so on. The story was always bandied about, and eventually, being of a curious nature, I began [in my 20's] to do genealogical research. By the time I found there was no documented evidence of this bloodline, my G-mother had passed, and most of her children [my aunts and uncles] – they all went to their graves believing in the family lore. Were they liars when they told other people they had Native American blood? No, and they would only have been liars, had they lived long enough for me to dispel the myth – which of course they did not. So were they just passing on what they believed? Yes. Did they knowingly lie? No.
So really, you just need to stop the silly repetitive non-point. This kind of stuff happens all the time in genealogical circles!
People think they are related to Kings, Queens, Presidents etc, when they aren’t. In my area, everyone believes they are related to Jubal Early – a man who never had one child, let alone the dozens claiming family ties.
terps apparently needs to something to obsess about just as suzie needs attention. Carilion, OWS, Warren… It’s a mental thing.
#15 I’m not 1/32 but we do have Indian in our very, very distant past. Never claimed it for anything, though.
#6 Nah, LC, they obviously don’t think it’s worth sponsoring. That’s why they did it for 35 or 36 years.
Boy do you look silly now.
The title of this blog post made me think of you, terps.
“In my area, everyone believes they are related to Jubal Early – a man who never had one child, let alone the dozens claiming family ties.”
I’m related to Jubal Early! Terps is, too! (It’s Irish thing)
Terps…he is right. They lost. They know it. They will never admit it. Oh well.
What exactly did we lose, Phil? I wasn’t aware that there was a battle going on.
The pathetic few who have imaginary “wars” that they pretend to win…anyone really care? They’re so cute when they think they have a point.
What on earth have we “lost”? You want us to believe that even one of you, much less all three, cares when someone in politics lies? I am afraid, you have a hell of a lot more proofing to do on your own side of the aisle before we give you credit for “exposing” a mistake in someone’s family lore.
What about Scott Brown “forgetting” to admit that “amazing” half court shot took 5 tries? That is a lie of omission and deliberation, he was there.
What about Scott Brown’s lie that the stimulus bill “didn’t create one new job”?
What about Scott Brown’s lie that he didn’t cover his adult daughter under Obamacare, but under Romneycare?
What about Scott Brown’s lie that he was a “Red Sox fan” who just happened to advocate for moving the Red Sox out of Fenway Park?
What about Scott Brown’s lie that he “had not touched alcohol since Jan. 1.” when he had just been seen drinking beer samples at a Brewery?
What about Scott Brown’s lie that he had “been aware of” Congressional insider trading four months before it came to light?
What about Scott Brown’s lie when elected that there would be “no more closed-door meetings or back-room deals by an out-of-touch party leadership” and then after private talks with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd and other top Democrats, Brown scored a series of exemptions from the “Volcker rule” — for big financial firms?
And finally, what about Scott Brown’s lie that he was “tired” of “having banks and Wall Street act like casinos with our money,” but not so tired he did not work to “score a series of exemptions” from key regulations for the big banks and financial services firms?
If lies and cheating on the voters is so important to you three, please let’s go for round 2 in this “contest” of liars?
Your right, they know they went out on a limb with Warren and it got sawed off. But wait till they go after their next conservative. They have lost all moral authority to judge because they are aligned with a big time cheater.
Sandi (#13) that is FUNNY. I applaud you on that.
Posted on May 18th, 2012
I couldn’t detect the high cheek bones under the beret and red flag. You need to put a feather in that beret in honor of your Indian heratige. You will be a hit at the big meeting tomorrow.
Lake Claytor, my daughter works for a medical magazine. She had to write an article about a man one time whose story was so boring she didn’t have a clue what to say.
She sent me an e-mail saying, This is such a who the hell cares story, that I don’t even know where to start. That describes my feelings about the Elizabeth Warren “scandal” that Terps and Phil are so bent out of shape about. Who the hell cares.
Aw come on folks, Elizabeth Warren lied. She lied about a nothing so pitifully unimportant that it matters to the “low effort” voters among us. The least we can do is join the contest they declared was on. Somebody has to play with the “special kids”, I guess their side has shunned them, it seems like it is our duty.
Come on, bring the lies. You bring ours and we will defend or concede and you have to do the same. One caveat, this is not a game for Suzie, or Lake Claytor to participate in, I do not play with trolls. But terps and Phil (and other normal conservatives), let’s play!
Shall we start with my #26? I’m waiting…
Do you want to establish rules? Quantity of lies in one post? Number of people we can choose from? Or just a free for all until somebody sees how STUPID this is?
What about Marco Rubio’s big lie about when his Parents fled Cuba, and his name has been mentioned as a possible vice presidential candidate!
#28 Terps, I think I just saw Commander Zero in Grandin Village. He had on the beret, the black shirt, and black shorts. He doesn’t appear to have the “Warren” cheek bones but his complexion seems to be about the same as Warren’s. He wasn’t carrying the flag either, maybe it was one of the other OWSers turn to take it home this weekend?
I have seen no proof Elizabeth Warren lied. Not even terps has offered a scintilla of evidence about that.
The BEST he can do suggests she may have been inaccurate about her heritage. That’s not the same thing as lying. It wasn’t lying if she believed it. And the evidence suggests she did.
THAT’S why this is a nonstory, notwithstanding Hilary Chabot or whatever her name is.
Yeah well, I said it was stupid.
Check this out: http://www.addictinginfo.org/2011/10/24/marco-rubio-lies-about-his-cuban-narrative-and-then-defends-lie/
THAT’S why this is a nonstory,
Again, substitute George W. Bush and WMD for Dan’s excusing of Warren’s behavior. I am SO glad he’s changed his tune on Bush. It gets tiresome when leftwingers keep saying “he lied” when Bush said what everybody else had said about WMD.
For the love of God! See that is why you can’t play Suzie, you have no sense of decency. Lying about your cherry picked intel on WMD’s is NOT comparable to being wrong about your ancestry. FGS, you are pathetic. Just pathetic.
“They lost, terps….”
Yes, we lost. Now go play on the freeway.
She claimed to have a marriage license from her great great grandmother. Then that turned into a marriage license application. It has been proven that neither exist.
Warren refuses to release her records from Harvard. If they would clear her name, you can bet she would release them. She is in full stonewall mode now.
You can bet that those records show her playing up her fake Indian Heritage at a time when Harvard was desperate for a minority professor.
Dan, you cannot deny any of this. The Boston Herald is closing in on Warren the way you closed in on Bobby Thompson. They are both cheats who are paying a dear price.
The difference is that President Cheney and his puppet had the real intelligence in front of them and chose to ignore it and lie to further their agenda.
“What about Marco Rubio’s big lie”
Being 1/32 or 1/64 or 1/128 native American would definitely be preferable to being 100% idiot, a category which you are dangerously close to qualifying for.
Good intel. We know that GDAD likes to hang out in Grandin Village so he can rat out people who don’t pay to park. He may indeed be the fat guy with the beret and red flag.
STOP THE PRESSES
Warren is now nailed for plagiarism . I wonder if this will bother any journalists in the audience. She lifted 3 recipes verbatim for a “Pow Wow Chow” cookbook.
Sandi, if you think terps is the “normal” conservative and LC is not…
What, exactly, is your definition of “normal”?
“She lifted 3 recipes verbatim for a “Pow Wow Chow” cookbook.”
Oh, noes!! Next we’ll be hearing that she’s not springtime-fresh “down there.”
Mitt Romney is making a mistake by scolding a PAC for telling the truth about 0bama’s radical past. This is John McCain all over again. I was afraid of this. Romney certainly didn’t pull punches against the good GOP candidates. Now is not the time to go soft on the Communist. Bury his ass and don’t apologize for it.
44 Breitbart’s site has done an outstanding job hammering this fraud. Once again, the new media beats the MSM to the scoop. We know who the true journalists are, don’t we?
47.”Mitt Romney is making a mistake by scolding a PAC for telling the truth about 0bama’s radical past.”
So are you making your talents available to him as a campaign manager or at least consultant? This is a good place to announce it.
#27 “Your” right? Nice job, terps. You must be the dude with the dunce cap.
So I wonder what everybody thinks about terps now pretty much lying every time he posts something? Pitiful.
#36 Even George Bush admits he lied about the WMD.
#32 That all right, VRWC, I was driving by Elmwood right after dusk and I’m sure I saw terps picking up brown log-like substances and sniffing them, as well as trying to lift fingerprints off small pieces of trash. I think he’s still there on bench patrol to see if any OWSers are camping out. I also hear that he’s hired families to head to the park this weekend to see if anybody scares them off.
I know this seems extreme, but he’s been pretty desperate ever since he got caught lying about what occupiers do down there.
This is hilarious! Watch this “Ken Burns” video on the Indian past of Elizabeth Warren. She led the press to Her cookbook “Pow Wow Chow” and it turns out she plagiarized it. You can’t make this stuff up.
Keep believing it’s all lies GDAD and go wave that red flag around.
Whoops, here is the link:
NY Magazine (i.e. very liberal) predicts Pow Wow Chow “will be her downfall.”
#55 Can “you’re” posts get any more juvenile? Apparently so.
Matt F, you have not been here when Lake Claytor is quoting scripture to browbeat people and assuring them they cannot possibly Christian. When he throws up the right wing media as a “source” and makes up positions no one has to appear morally superior to “the Socialists and Communists” in the White House etc. Terps is a straight up conservative; he does not normally play the Lake Claytor zealot thing, Carilion and apparently Elizabeth Warren send him over into Lake Claytor territory, but he is not that way normally. Although, I am seriously reconsidering the sanity I granted him.
Oh Dear God in Heaven, do you mean to tell me that woman actually had the audacity to believe she was “Indian enough” to call herself “Cherokee” in a COOK BOOK? I want a Congressional Heating on this. This cannot go unpunished. Losing an election is not nearly enough. Suppose the next bomb to drop is that she supported her way through school by posing nude with a pillow? This nation cannot take any more of this impostor. Is she in jail yet?
If you people were not so pathetic, you would be funny. As it is you just remain pathetic.
“She led the press to Her cookbook “Pow Wow Chow” and it turns out she plagiarized it. You can’t make this stuff up.”
At some point or another on this blog I published a recipe for crab cakes. I called it “my” recipe, and it is insofar as it’s the one I use whenever I make crab cakes. But believe it or not, I did not invent crab cakes. And I did not invent that recipe. I learned it from an old lady named Ada, who used to be the cook at the lunch counter/soda fountain at Buddy Levy’s Capitol Drug Store on West Street in Annapolis. This was when I was 17. She made the best crab cakes I’ve ever eaten. Ada retired in her early 80s, and she is long gone by now. (So is Buddy Levy; he was a great guy). I got my recipe from her.
I don’t know if she made hers up, if she got it from somewhere else. Maybe she read it in a copy of a newspaper from the Virgin Islands. And she started selling those as her own. And then one day she told it to me, and I made a couple of minor changes over the years. Like the corn meal on the outside, spiced with ground habenero (or cayenne) pepper. I learned that aspect from Diane Cunningham. She was the wife of the owner of a service station I worked at in my first two years of college. And I switched out Ada’s yellow mustard for spicy brown, because I like that stuff better.
Anyway, by the standards of Howie Carr, and terps, I may very well be guilty of plagiarism. Not because I use Ada’s/Diane’s recipe, but because I published it here on the blog.
Just wanted to get that off my chest.
If Elizabeth Warren copied those recipes she submitted to a cookbook word for word out of that paper published in St. Thomas, and passed them off as her own, she is guilty of plagiarism, I reckon.
BUT … if those recipes were given to her by somebody else, and she submitted them, not for money, but for some kind of fundraising cookbook, does that make her guilty of plagiarism?
By the way, terps: your wife makes the most delicious lasagna I’ve ever eaten. Would she give me that recipe? And, if she didn’t invent it (but got if from someone else) and she passed it along to me, would that make her guilty of plagiarism?
Matt F. and GDAD are both right. I am not a “normal” conservative and I am juvenile. I like issues that drive home a point(liberal hypocrisy in this case) but have great potential for humor(the more silly and juvenile the better.) This “slow motion train wreck” with Elizabeth Warren is the funniest thing I have ever witnessed in politics. If I was a liberal, I would hate it. Just lighten up and have fun with it. There will be plenty of conservatives that screw up and you all will have your day.
gdad, I swear you make more references to OWStreeters’ pooping habits… seriously.
Dan, all IP issues aside, good recipes are like dirty jokes; you shouldn’t keep them to yourself, they are best when passed down and enjoyed by all!
“Mitt Romney is making a mistake by scolding a PAC for telling the truth about 0bama’s radical past. This is John McCain all over again. I was afraid of this. Romney certainly didn’t pull punches against the good GOP candidates. Now is not the time to go soft on the Communist. Bury his ass and don’t apologize for it.”
I’m with Suzie. Romney should use that ad, which was developed by billionaire and Chicago Cubs owner Joe Ricketts, who is against all government spending — except when he has his hand out, begging for hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars AND subsidies for additions and improvements to Wrigley Field. That kind of government spending he’s ALL FOR. The dude is a government handout king.
Run those ads! They will get Romney far!
gdad, I was RIBBING Dan by imitating a spiteful, business-threatening Lefty.
The RT finally removing themselves from the largest patriotic, American event in Roanoke is about 25 years too late, if you ask me.
Read the article. She lifted 3 recipes WORD FOR WORD from ones published by a NY restaurant and published them as her own. What is amazing about this is that she directed the press to this book to “prove” her Indian authenticity. She is a total basket case.
Let me tee the ball up real high here so you can understand that this is 100% plagiarism.
This article shows how she lifted the exact words, complete and verbatim, for the New York Times in a story about a famous NY restaurant called Le Pavilion. The plagiarism is not in question. This not your crab cake or My wife’s lasagna. We did not publish those recipes for money and try to pass them off as our own.
In other words, yes Terps, you hear crickets because they can’t defend Jokeahontas’ lies.
John Wilburn is right. You are fascinated with poop. You should wave the red flag at the rally today and work a pooper-scooper with the other hand. Be careful not to get any poop on that beret.
#60 Will do, terps. I’ve already informed my wife of her plagiarism when she submitted recipes for her church and work cookbooks. As a result, she has decided not to run for political office.
BTW, since VRWC actually knows who I am, I seriously doubt he would mistake me for Captain Zero.
What are the odds of terps dropping this inanity if we all just agree to admit “defeat”. Because clearly “winning” on this blog is a big, big deal to those people.
Oh but terps…you’re really, really witty calling gdad fat. I look forward to some fart jokes from you, which should segue nicely from your “defacating” posts.
#60 terps – “…”plenty of conservatives that screw up and you all will have your day.”
Speaking of conservative screw ups:
If this had been a Democrat – this story would have been all over the news – like the John Edwards’ story. Another example of the “liberal” bias myth.
Justice Joan Orie Melvin to step away from state Supreme Court to fight charges
May 18, 2012 8:19 pm
[Republican] State Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin surrendered to authorities this afternoon to face nine criminal counts pertaining to her alleged use of state resources for campaign purposes.
The RT has not removed itself from the event.
My point is, you believe she lifted them world for word. But you don’t KNOW that. Those recipes could hve been given to her by someone else who lifted them. I want to hear from Warren about this.
Recall yesterday, the National Review charged her with plagiarizing a passage in money-related book she authored from an earlier book published by someone else. And that turned out to be complete and utter BS. (But I bet you were sure that was true, too, eh>)
really, LC…let’s see what “patriotic” local businesses decide to take up the slack. This would be an excellent opportunity for some of the blowhard “small business owners” on this blog, for example, to put their money where their considerable mouths are and step up to the plate.
After all, Carilion had funded most of it at this point. So I guess that makes Carilion the “patriotic” company.
I look forward to seeing all of our Bloggie “business owners” demonstrate their patiotism by stroking a check!
gdad doesn’t need to go to the rally to find poop. All he has to do is read your posts on this blog for the past few days. That will provide all the poop anyone would need to fertilize their lawn for the next 25 years.

Being 1/32 or 1/64 or 1/128 native American would definitely be preferable to being 100% idiot, a category which you are dangerously close to qualifying for.”
Dave, notice what you wrote…notice what you called me. You referred to me as….”Phil Chitwood.” More specifically, you used my REAL name. Now, think, dave(I know it’s difficult for you), but how did you know to use my correct name? That’s right…I gave it to you. I am a known commodity. I have been a Roanoke City fire fighter for 23 years. I’ve been a remodeling contractor for 25 yrs. I’ve lived at the same address for 13 yrs. I am in the phone book for God’s sake. You on the other hand, are just a feeble little boy hiding behind the big door of anonymity. It is very unbecoming to hurl insults with nothing to lose.
“19.#15 I’m not 1/32 but we do have Indian in our very, very distant past. Never claimed it for anything, though.”
Well then, you’re one up on Liz Warren.
51.#36 Even George Bush admits he lied about the WMD.”
#77 ummmm, Phil Chitwood click on the link and hear GWB in his own words…not that he “lied”- but that Iraq/Saddam Hussein had no WMDs…and he mentions 9/11 as a reason to go to Iraq, then corrects himself and says Iraq had nothing to do with that event…
Sooo Hillary, he corrected himself. You know the man was prone to getting tongue-tied.
I see, it is only Elizabeth Warren’s harmless lies that bother you. Who knew? You folks are beyond pathetic.
#75 “You on the other hand, are just a feeble little boy hiding behind the big door of anonymity. It is very unbecoming to hurl insults with nothing to lose.”
You mean like suzie, pammala, terps, Chuck and so on?
People who can’t keep their lies straight get tongue-tied.
“I’ve been a remodeling contractor for 25 yrs.”
Odd, the DPOR has never heard of you.
“Partisanship is so blinding”
“80.I see, it is only Elizabeth Warren’s harmless lies that bother you. Who knew? You folks are beyond pathetic.” No, you are…that’s all you got?? Warren doubled down….Bush corrected himself.
Art…DPOR has ears?? Who new?!
4 letters you can’t pronouce writes, “You mean like suzie, pammala, terps, Chuck and so on?” Yep….like them; and like you, too.
#87 While you might not know who I am, Phil, several folks on this blog know me. I just don’t care to put my real name out there for anybody and everybody who just happens by. I’ve had three different right wingers on this blog threaten me (as well as couple of other people), so I think I’ll keep it just the way it is.
#87 PS — sorry you can’t pronounce something so simple, Phil.
Keep hurling insults, Coward. I cannot imagine you being worth the energy to be threatened, 4 letters. Must have made your year.
#75 Phil Chitwood,
Simmer down, little teapot…it’s just an on-line blog. It’s not like he’s insulting your manhood or challenging you to a duel or anything. It’s still pretty nice out; maybe you ought to go for a walk or mow the yard or something to get your mind of gdads stinging indictment of you. I promise you, life will go on if you log off for a bit and have a beer or three.
I personally think its pretty funny that gdad gets people so fired up that they want to fight him. You aren’t the first and I hope you won’t be the last. He had poor Dublin Dawg practically apoplectic. I’ve seen 5th graders with more self control than he had, and you’re coming close to channeling him in this thread. You ought to be ashamed that somebody you don’t know is playing you like a baby grand piano.
#90 Oh good, god, what is it with the “coward” thing? What was really funny with the other folks who have tried to insult me with that is that THEY were anonymous. Anyway, Phil, I said nothing at all to provoke such a a ridiculous response. You’re the one who said you couldn’t pronounce my name and I pointed out that it’s really rather simple.
Are we sure Phil isn’t actually Dawg or Jack McGuire?
“Art…DPOR has ears?? Who new?!” [sic]
At least not under the handle you’re using here. So much for transparency, eh?
“He had poor Dublin Dawg practically apoplectic.”
Where is Dawg? I have a hard time believing he left on his own.
#90 Oh, please, Phil. I thought you were better than Dawg and Jack/Tony. Guess not.
Phil Chitwood – is this you?
Phil, you and terps might not want to hear this but I contacted the person who would know. And she has verified that the application exists and that she never told anyone that it did not. I have sent that email to Dan so he can vouch for the fact that she kindly responded to my inquiry.
I showed you the license and the newsletter from 2006 that confirmed the “family lore”. I showed you the Dawes Roll that showed a “Sarah Smith” listed. All of which proves only that Warren was misled, therefore mistaken, not that she is or has ever been a liar.
You both totally ignored the real lies of Scott Brown and the real lie of Marco Rubio so this discussion has never been about liars, not big ones and not little ones, it is about your vendetta against a good politician who does not deserve it.
There are some creepy people on here. Calling people, stalking young women like Amanda Pflugrad by sending her emails. Really weird stuff. Just ignore them.
And one more thing on the whole ignorant idea of a recipe being “plagiarized”, the original newspaper article for the piece that you used to attempt to prove her plagiarism clearly states “…and the owner, Henri Soule had one particular specialty that he would ask to have prepared …” The restaurant opened in 1941 and Soule died in 1966. Pierre Franey, the chef who wrote the article and the recipes, is also dead so there is no way on earth to verify where the recipe came from, but it is just as likely to have been passed down to them from someone else as it was likely passed down to Warren from someone in her family. The right wing is quite adept at proving how pathetic and low you are. That is all.
There are a billion pasta recipes out there that all read more or less similar. This isn’t “plagiarism”. It’s like accusing a chair manufacturer of copying because, hey…there are already chairs out there.
just an FYI, recipes are barely covered under copyright law. listings of ingredients together cannot be copyrighted, only the description in which you combine the ingredients.
Much to my dismay as I invented a wonderful drink this past weekend, involving Bacon-infused Bourbon.
#97 You’re right, troll suzie. There’s right-winger Dublin Dawg, who pretended once that he had been to the bowling alley to spy on me and I guess to try to frighten me. Didn’t work, especially since bowling season was over at the time and I wasn’t at the bowling alley. Then there was MMM, who wanted to meet me for some bizarre Olympics that he had made up and for who knows what other reason since several of his posts were vaguely threatening. Then there was Jack McGuire, who kept wanting to meet people to punch them out.
A couple of other right wingers who I won’t name also occasionally declare how easy it would be to look up anonymous folks, and then folks like you routinely play work schedule police or wonder out loud whether Ron’s college board members are aware of certain posts he has made here.
VERY, VERY creepy.
#97 “There are some creepy people on here.”
Thank you, suzie, for calling out the creepy right wingers, including those who pretend they’ve been spying on you at the bowling alley; the one who challenges you to some bizarre, twisted “Olympics” while making veiled threats; the redneck who kept expressing a desire to punch out liberals on the blog; the wackos who wonder out loud about your work schedule and then ponder in public about how easy it would be to find out where you work; and the bizarro wonders whether a college board has seen its president’s comments on here (hint, hint, wink, wink). Andf then there’s the guy who makes up stories about finding human feces in Elmwood Park
Yep, the wingnuts on this blog are a strange lot.
Sounds like the few kids in their PH class that actually graduate, all tie for valedictorian
#1023 Hmm, seems like suzie, the alleged college grad, is having a little trouble keeping up with something as simple as what comments go in what threads.
And she still has no defense whatsoever for the fact that HV declares practically its whole class valedictorians.
I want to hear from Warren about this.
Oh, sure. That will clear up everything considering she’s already LIED multiple times.
PH kicks it old school. Only one valedictorian. Apparently they haven’t absorbed the new “Valedictorian = top 25%” definition yet.
Gdad is one paranoid dude. I mean, this is a blog, isn’t it? A 9 by 15 screen with words. Nothing more. Anybody who thinks about this place more than 5 seconds a day of offscreen time needs serious counseling.
@106 – “Anybody who thinks about this place more than 5 seconds a day of offscreen time needs serious counseling”
Thus spoke Suzie…a person who posts on FB with polls and discussions amongst “friends” as to which poster here is most racist, etc. etc.
Go ahead and call the counselor and make that appointment now Suzie.
#106 “Anybody who thinks about this place more than 5 seconds a day of offscreen time needs serious counseling.”
Well, Miriam sure nailed that one. I can’t even count the number of times you have assured us you have talked about the blog with friends, your “hubby,” your sibling(s), the klatsch. I’ve talked about the blog with other people I’ve met who also post on the blog — and that’s it. And you claim this just one of several blogs or discussion areas you post on. It’s obviously your fantasy life. Sad. And creepy.
Gdad thought I said you needed counseling if you spend more than five seconds a day NOT thinking about the blog. He thinks that figure is high.

Metro Columnist Dan Casey knows a little bit about a lot of things but not a heck of a lot about most things. That doesn't keep him from writing about them, however. So keep him honest!
He welcomes your rants, raves and considered opinions, so long as the language is civil (i.e. no four-letter words). He'll read all your posts and may or may not respond.
