Good Morning Stragglers,
I realize by posting this note I’ve broken yet another promise, but for the two or three of you still checking this pecksniffian does it really matter? Of course not. After consulting with the Bagwan on this matter his eminence pointed out that perhaps the Diatribe could morph into a site that spawns serious social commentary on events of the day. While we don’t get Weiner stories everyday there is enough outrageousness surrounding all of us it shouldn’t be difficult to share it.
I received emails from some of you that never posted a single comment but enjoyed the tom foolery and banter enough to check in regularly. I thought about this over some good “Free Range Red” and a bowl of accoutrement and decided it could work. My spare time is still committed to art and alcohol so I’m going to need some help.
For this to work each of you must submit a news story or an event in which you participated willingly or better yet forced upon you for me to post the first response or reaction; opening it up for commentary. It doesn’t have to be lucubrated or pros just a simple honest reaction to the story or comment. I know many of you prefer not to get involved but for this to work you must at the very least submit fodder for discussion every now and then.
Use the submission tool on this site. You can scan newspaper articles or cut and paste articles from the web, but would really love eye-witness accounts of the shit storms that whirl around you!
Let’s try this format and see if we can get a little traction.
TODAY marks the 25th anniversary of the late John Hughes classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” I hated guys like him in high school. They’d cut school all the time seemingly with impunity. I had one such day in my young life and remember it vividly! I got caught. Share your Bueller day
