Express Times Scrapes Bottom of Barrel

The Express Times has an interesting weekly feature called Five Questions, an audio interview with local luminaries like shy and soft-spoken Jim (flaming monkeys) Hickey or Easton's Chanelle Price, the fastest mid-distance runner in the country.

But now it's summertime, and all the important people are at the beach. So for this week's Five Questions interview, poor Sarah Cassi was forced to interview a blogger - moi. I had to promise to keep my hands on the table at all times for some reason.

Q. Do you have sources you depend on or people that feed you information?

"I make most of it up. It's pretty much fabricated. It's pretty much pure lies. It's totally worthless. Thank you very much."

Express Times editor Joe Owens has his own report.

Q. Why don't you write a newspaper column?

"Because they'd need to run my picture and people don't deserve that at the breakfast table."

That bastard! I'm pretty sure I can nail him with libel for that one.

Wow..those Express-Times people play rough! I know a good mouthpiece that may be able to get you some cash out of this beatdown!

Yeah, Owens once cornered me in a dark nazareth alley and made me recite the pledge of allegiance. I thnk I'll sue for a gazillion dollars.

I like the looks debate.

I got you all beat but that is besides the point.

No one can sue, your on the record "its all fabricated lies."

How many times do you get sue threats from this blog per year?

Tom Foolery, Next week, I will have to pay off my bet to you - a post that says three nice things about Sam Bennett.

At least you were honest about most of what you write is bullcrap. we already know that.

It is unbelievable to me that a respected new organization would have anything to do with you.

I sensed sexual tension in the audio. Just yours, of course, Bernie.

Hey, give them a break. Angle and I are the only ones around this time of year.

Whether it's the MSM or even this blog, it's amazing how many good and productive stories are never mentioned. It's always the crap.

I have to write about what interests me, not what interests some anonymous commenter. If I spent my time trying to give people what I think they want, this blog would be much different.

Having said that, I am just one voice and entitled to no more weight than any other voice. if you feel that other issues deserve attention, you should start your own blog and start writing about them. Perhaps we can learn from you.
