No, I'm not making that up. I don't think I could have made that up.
I'm in good company, too. The Opinion Mill, Sloppydawg, Xpatriated Texan, Bluejersey.net (where I also am fortunate enough to blog,) and big guys like Daily Kos, Huffington Post, Big Brass Blog- we were all dissed. I nearly choked on my Freedom Fries.
An interesting point about this: the post has been changed. It was also wrong in that some of the blogs in question had posted on the riots, especially Daily Kos. Yesterday Bluejersey.net was listed but today it seems to be gone, and the Kos posts which someone listed in the comments are now integrated. Every time I've checked it, the comments have been changed and mostly deleted. Can't have dissenters now, can we?
There are two main reasons why I haven't blogged about riots in France:
1. Anyone read the name of the blog? It's the Center of NJ Life, not Central France Life. There's a big thing going on today in Our Fair State and I've been a little focused on that. Vive New Jersey! Vive Jon Corzine!
2. I don't have much to say that hasn't already been said. What did he want me to say? Is he angry because I haven't adopted a stance contrary to his own? As Steve Hart at The Opinion Mill said:
As for me, I'm an old school type who likes to read up on something, think about it and make sure I know what I'm talking about before I post something. And since I write a blog and not a newspaper of record, I find that if I don't have anything of value to add, I'll post about something else. This is obviously an alien way of behaving for somebody like Snitch, but I'm always amazed at the ability of winger bloggers to start instantly foaming at the mouth en masse on a selected topic.
In conclusion, I hope the riots in France end soon. Thanks for listening.
