I must admit that I fell for it.
I have done a disservice to my readers.
During the past several months, I have considered the blatherings of a certain scandal-blogger, one who has only infinitesimal allegiance to the truth, one who has truly sold out to a political agenda designed to relegate the municipality of New Albany to the wastebin of history, as legitimate.
Although I disagreed, almost incomparably, with every utterance from this schizophrenic mouthpiece for the forces of regress, I still credited it with intent.
I recant. I seek absolution.
The most recent posting from this bibulous Internet outlet makes it clear that, all along, we have been had. The fleeting Web log known as Speak Out Lout (pardon, Loud) New Albany has demonstrated, even for this gullible mind, that its congenital contempt for progress was, is, and always will be an exercise in satire, designed to narcotize the incumbents in NA Districts 1, 2, 3, and 4 into the belief that their unforgivable neglect of the public weal was accepted by no fewer than four residents of this notable city.
The endorsement of the feeble efforts of CM Steve Price makes it clear, even to this feeble mind, that it was all just a joke. That, even for one moment, I acknowledged it as an expression of "a" viewpoint amongst the citizenry of this storied city, is my shame.
It was all a joke. Good one, Laura. I bow to you. Your latest posting makes it clear that you've been pulling our leg all this time. That you have enabled the sub-literate to excrete their addled versions of reality must have been, all along, part of your master plan.
Although I don't pretend to understand your master plan, the subtle way in which you exposed the truly damaged minds who inhabit the body politic was, indeed, masterful. $$$$$$$$, concern taxpayer, Yvonne Kersey et spouse, Messrs. Brambleberry and Lucchese, EriKKK, and all were exposed for the inveterate prevaricators they are. That you corraled others into this web was, I'm sure, an exercise in acceptable collateral damge, and I'm sure they will forgive you.
As for me, I can say only "brava" for the performance piece you produced. I am humbled that it took me this long to realize that you weren't serious, even for a moment.
I eagerly await your next posting. It can only advance the cause of the ordinary resident of New Albany to root out the dementia, and expose the bacterial 'pinions of the "families" beholden to the Coffey-Price-Schmidt-Kochert "Gang of Four."
Your exposure of this cancerous element is to be applauded. I could not have orchestrated a better way to show the people of NA the true choices facing them in 2007. Gracias.
