From today’s Sound Off in the Waukesha Freeman (and yes, I am having way too much fun with these) :
I am just calling in regard to James Wigderson. I have a question: He is just a simple blogger, like 10 million other people. If you have to publish his article, why can’t we use other bloggers? Why does he have to have only his article in on Thursdays? Why don’t we take, you know, like four or five or six different ones and rotate? He is very annoying, he has nothing positive to say and he’s boring, which makes it even worse.
– Judith Sadkovich, Town of Mukwonago
Boring? Boring? Me? Let’s ask the Lovely Doreen from Waukesha. Am I ever boring?
Okay, kids? Am I boring?
“Later, dad, we’re trying to watch Spongebob.”
In all seriousness, I am grateful that, for whatever reason, the Waukesha Freeman and most of its readers do not find me boring, and that I have been lucky enough to grace the Thursday edition (still just 50 cents) lo these many years now. Judging from the Sound Offs, I may be disliked occasionally, but I’m not boring.
By the way, I loved the name of the commenter from Madison, “Ellen Feral,” and with my juvenile sense of humor I’ll just point out that she lived up to the billing.
