A sincere invitation to our “idiotic” readers…

We take due note that from time to time our posts inspire a number of “idiotic” ratings.  Sometimes, they equal, or even exceed, the other rating choices.

We note this with puzzlement and more than a little frustration, however.  We never, ever, expected that what we offer would find universal acceptance, and in fact, just between you and me, we hope to provoke some dismay, disagreement, and doubt about our powers of deduction, discussion, disclosure and deliberation.

The purpose of this blog is admittedly to allow your humble correspondent an outlet for self-expression with none of the traditional limits of the “mainstream media.” We are possessed, however, of just enough naiveté and idealism to hope as well that it would be a place where ‘dialogue’ would take place, to the benefit of all who visit here, and all points of view.

And so we repeat our policy.  No matter your opinion of, or reaction to our offerings, you are invited to comment, as long as you remain civil.  In fact, we encourage you to do so.  Hopefully, we will all learn and benefit from a more thorough exploration of perspectives on the subjects we choose to address.

Most importantly, keep in mind that your comments posted via the “comment” option at the end of each post will remain anonymous, if that is your wish, not only to our readers, but also to our editorial staff.

In fact, most of the time, I’m not even sure who I am.

Imagine the pure delight in proving a pompous ass like Poppycock wrong or misguided, which is what you forego by not offering your thoughts.

So have at it; there’s no risk, and no down-side, unless you know something I don’t about how blogs work. 

Which is entirely possible, if not likely.

  1. Ms. Sartoris' appearance in the Ostrich news, I choose not to call it a "paper", since it has become the resurrection of the old and discredited Maine Times, brings to mind the old saying about "words full of sound and fury , signifying...nothing. Sad that our governing body seems to attract people like Ms. Sartoris, but then this is the Town in which that very Liberal college is located...filling young minds with more liberal blather...God help us !!!
