I don’t want to be mean, or anything – and, actually in this particular case I don’t want to be mean – but I have to confess that I’m a little disappointed in the general lack of performance from the Online Left over this entire Jane Yolen thing. I mean, yes, it got me a little boost for a couple of days, and I understand that this will be good for increasing my ad revenue and whatnot… but as digital jihads go it was not really all that much of a much, honestly. It’s certainly not enough for me to encourage it further; to be frank about things, my time is kind of valuable, and I’m just not really feeling the oomph, here.
So, let’s get on with things, shall we? Here, let me provide some actual content: 8 Tiny Things That Stopped Suicides. Every so often, Cracked.com produces a grace note that makes up for… well, actually, Cracked.com comes up pretty consistently with some funny (if rude) content, so they don’t have much to make up for. Anyway, this is a decent piece; I figure that it might be useful for all those people out there that are just a bit too disappointed that Russ Feingold’s hiding from Scott Walker.
OK, OK, I swear: that was the last dig. It’s just that I’ve been meaning to point out that this entire Yolen thing was really about Ron Johnson’s brazen effrontery in defeating Feingold last year – and if I don’t use that observation now, then when could I?
