street by street, blog by blog

have you read the comments section lately? a friend of mine in new york told me that it reads like professional wrestling.

he's a journalist, and so has their predilection for colorful euphemisms.

anyway, here's the new rules:

1) no anonymous comments will be allowed. the internet provides enough room for anonymity without people hiding behind the user name "anonymous" and posting all kinds of craziness.

2) play nice. i'm all for what tavis smiley refers to on his show as "spirited discussion," but if you can't be at least halfway respectful, you don't get to play.

3) in the words of kent mcclard of heartattack/ebullition fame, "if you don't like it, start your own zine" (i'm pretty sure he meant to say 'blog').

have you been to henry's? i think that's the name of the natural food type store out that way.

we get a lot of dried fruit from there sent to us every once in a while from my wife's grandparents.

mostly it goes to waste, but neither of us has the heart to tell them so.
