Fight! Fight!


In a brazen, pathetic effort to increase his readership, this guy wants to start a fight. Mike Royko had a sign hanging in his office that said, "The eagle doesn't hunt flies."

So, sorry, no fight.

  • But without the "brazen pathetic effort," it's hard for us decide who's the eagle and who's the fly here. Frankly, in my own opinion, blogsites (including my own modest one)have yet to convince me the world at large needs them. I'm willing to be convinced, but for all their flaws, the Old Media still have editorial staffs/filters/policies and most of public street addresses where we can find them. Which blogger can say that..??

  • In reply to jackspatafora:

    I'm with you: Old media did it better. Still does. But I'm old, and what do I know?
