I’ve been marginally covering this story since Magician X and MagiCentric are way ahead of me on the curve. Also, I trust I’ve left no doubt that I dislike the Whit Haydn that appears on the Magic Cafe. He’s mean, condescending and just plain rude. I can do without that.
Magician X has posted the first commentary on the long awaited response here. It’s a good read. Please be aware that this thread has been purified by the guards at Stalag Cafe. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the foresight to grab it earlier.
It’s an interesting story. It will be interesting to watch it play out.
I only have one comment here. Whit’s blaming the blogs for the problems seems to be totally misplaced.
Drivel & Drool
One of the posts I didn’t see on the revised thread were comments from a good ol’ boy from Tennessee calling anonymous posters cowards. I believe this was in a couple of posts. Let’s see if I can’t explain this so he can understand it:
Let’s say you’re in the cabin enjoying a chaw and you hear a noise outside. It’s Pa Kettle – mad as hell, standing there with his loaded musket. He’s calling you out and wrongly accusing you of messing around with Ma Kettle out behind the privy.
You’re not gonna take it, so you go get your gun and when you start to load it you find that Pa Kettle sent his fat, ugly brother-in-law over and took your bullets.
Now you have two choices – you can walk outside unarmed and get blown to smithereens or be a coward and sneak out the cellar, so you can live to fight another day.
Which one you figger you’re gonna do?
