Dear Finder of Fact

Evidently there is someone out there who is appointed to judge which blogs are living, breathing organisms, which ones are merely moribund, and which ones are actually dead. Perhaps it’s a group, it’s a big job after all. Maybe they have a bunker somewhere. Indiana, maybe.

My advice is, get out more, meet some people. Your web time has convinced you that your opinion means something. It doesn’t. This is a blog, and blogs can have only one subject: The Blogger. If there were any other subject it would be a web site. Web sites have value; blogs do not. They are not worth the paper they are printed on. They are the most disposable and ephemeral of all entertainments, down the list with limericks and thirty-year-old TV Guides.

So get over it.

Opinions are like like ass holes: everyone has one, and they all stink.

I guess that I'm full of opinions too, but I know they're crap.

Even the professional opinions of expert-witnesses are crap, and for sale to the highest bidder at that. Everyone in the courtroom knows it. The background information that they provide can be illuminating, but even that must be taken with a grain of salt.

The opinions of everyday people like me are only useful in that they may be entertaining.
