Like this post if you’re not surprised.
I don’t think I need much by way of introduction. I have been making a pest of myself on RTFLC for about seven years now and basked in the glory of its many years of Christ-punching, flame-warring, editorial shifting from right to left and back, and employee turnover.
Rich Taylor suggested to me a few months ago that I ask JimK for a contributor spot. Rich has never given me anything but good advice, but I wanted to get back into the swing of things around here and (more importantly) make sure that I’d have time to post. Going through the archives last week and reading over some of my favorite discussions with Lee, I remembered why I first got interested in blogging. It was because of Lee and the way he could tell a story, shock the shit of his audience, debate, and persuade, persuade, persuade. As much as we disagreed on the issues of the day, I highly respected him as a writer and learned more than I can even begin to describe. I’m certainly not alone on that and many of you here who remember similarly want to keep that magical…thing…alive.
So I asked JimK to add me to the roster, and he graciously did. And there we are.
As a Contributor here, I’ll
write whenever I damn well feel like it and tell you exactly what’s wrong with you focus on what has always made this a great site: Solid writing built on rational arguments richly laced with biting humor, blasphemy, and pornographic references.
For those of you who have disliked my commentary here and aren’t sure what to expect, I suspect you will probably deepen your animosity within a couple of weeks. Please give me a clean slate and let me give you the chance to fall deeply in hate all over again.
