Comment on There Was A Time in 2000… by Raymond P. Ward

I miss the good old days when posting on-line required enough technical competence to create and maintain a blog. Back when we all figured out just enough HTML to so whatever we wanted to do. Back when the audience for blogs was mostly other bloggers, which made us a real community (at least in NOLA--certainly after Katrina). The amazing thing is that most bloggers were good writers. Maybe the impulse to write made us blog. Today it's too easy to post stuff on-line: anyone can create a Facebook account and post bad writing. Now if you'll excuse this grumpy old man, I need to find my Geritol.

Thanks for the missive. I like that it will be a found object. I own the space so it's better than Facebook and Twitter. Sorta.

"Vag," Equating what I said to slavery and Palestine is a huge generalization. I don't see how those things are or ever could ever be related. We are talking about a split second mistake a motorist makes to centuries long social events in history? How do they have anything to do with each other? Nothing you said makes any sort of point to the post, especially your insults (which don't serve the purpose you intended and only contextualize your words). You sound really pissed off and I am sorry for that.

"What would also do a some good is a little understanding that even tiny errors have huge consequences. But it was still an error. Whether it was an error of the cyclist or the trucker or, the most probable scenario, a little fault of both. It was an error." By your argument, the bombing of Palestine could be construed as an "error". The history of slavery in America was an "error". You're retarded, right? Pretty sure that's not an error. Three comments. This blog's really getting out there. Furthermore, you're aware that the poster of the pics of Gerick's death has been working with his friends and family to raise awareness, right? Oops. I guess that was another "error", like you opening your stupid mouth or wasting our oxygen.

Lot of big issues to contemplate. We see so much fictionalized violence; perhaps we are becoming desensitized. Speaking of the abortion protestors, they have arrived. I saw them holding the pictures you mention this morning at Jeff Davis & Tulane.
