Well, my inner defeatist has triumphed over my better intentions. Considering I have nothing to add in terms of half-enlightened commentary to this ongoing circus - and have chosen to sit back and enjoy/mock the Spectacle - I will therefore no longer be maintaining this blog.
I'd like to thank my partners in crime who have contributed to the site throughout the year - Montag, BDR, Mike and CultureGhost.
One of our favorite things to do on an early Saturday morning (besides a bike ride) is going to the Irvine Farmers' Market. It's quite big and has a great selection of fruit, vegetables, breads, meats, fish, wares, etc.
Yesterday, we went later than usual - around 10 am - and had to compete with the stroller brigade and slow-moving septuagenarians. (Where are the death panels when you need them?) But I still managed to stock up on some glorious sweet green figs and concord grapes.
On the way out I noticed a guy wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with Dear Leader's face with the caption "Stop Lying". That made me chuckle. Turns out that he is right at home in the Irvine Farmers' Market. That's 'cos the organizer of several Orange County Farmers' Markets is a dyed-in-the-wool Republican!
Yearly Kos is going to Pittsburgh this year. We at Agitprop are pleased to officially announce the possible consideration of maybe establishing a preliminary exploratory committee to raise the $275 registration fee, and to cajole Pittsburgh denizen, and proprietor of the web log Who is IOZ?, IOZ, to attend the convention and carry out some internet age gonzo journalism.
I'm ready to pitch in a few bucks. What about you guys?
