    ...Oh, did you say something? I must've dozed off for a minute...

    LOL - not every swing is a home run, Brand.

    Topic Fodder: Television streaming, recent shows or movies, books read, one place you would love to return to for a visit...

    After all, if I have to wait a week please make it at least interesting. :)

  • So again you resort to name calling? Why? Do you believe in calling customers names? Do you like to be called names? Are you trolling when you do so? Who are trolls? People who might disagree with you? Might have a differing opinion? People who desire to sincerely add to a conversation with a differing opinion? People you consider beneath you because they may have a differing opinion? Are people who agree with you trolls?

    Just curious.

  • What rude comments dreadpirateroberts!! And beg. Who is doing the name calling. Please do me a favor and write an editorial for the newspaper so others can make badgering remarks to you. And to Brand, your article may have been short this week but indeed a good article. Thank you Brand

    Brand, I think it's great to read that you're taking public relations coursework seriously. Not many people admit to needing help in that arena and I think it will be healthy for you to explore new ways of being humbled by people you enjoy composing blog entries for while making forays into the unknown lands of varying perspective or ideas in an effort to better appreciate the views of those you might have difficulty understanding, such as those that come from your President Trump.

  • Nit. I didn't badger. I asked questions about a comment he made. Never called him a name.

    I have written many editorials, usually around my industry. I just feel our media should not result into name calling. It doesn't help with multi layered conversations.

    I respect your thoughts and sorry you feel I was being offensive.

    Nit -

    I realize that tone and context are sometimes hard to convey in a written post, especially when trying to be brief.

    However, my comments were (at least I thought so) light-hearted chain-yanking and trying to be helpful.

    If you have followed prior dialogue between Mr. Selvia and myself you would know:

    1) we are not on the same page politically or philosophically.

    2) I have no problems with correcting Mr. Selvia - in a practical manner and as fair as possible - when I believe it is warranted.

    3) Mr. Selvia has repeatedly denigrated those who do not believe as he does or those who have called him out on certain things.

    With all of this considered, the first part of my post was a direct response to his statement: " As has been the case on only a couple of occasions before now, I have found it rather difficult to come up with anything remotely of interest to talk about for this week."

    And the second part of my post was to give him some ideas for future blog topics.

    I hold no personal animus towards Brand. I do not know him personally.

    But I will call him out when I believe its warranted, and give him credit when due.

    And I will be happy to write editorials for the newspaper, just as soon as they offer me a position.

    After all, they have plenty of examples of my writing style. LoL

    If/when they do - I will be sure to relish all of your "badgering remarks".

    Why? B/c then I know at least someone would have read it. :)
