The Written Peace:
Open Forum of June 30, 2005
A formal welcome goes out to our newest commentator, Chris Meyers. Perhaps some of you didn't notice, but we had another new commentator, GT, post on a thread further down. This gentleman runs the blog GT's Market Rant, a veritable pig heaven for those of us who devour financial data.
And on the subject of blogs, several of our regular and worthy commentators here now have blogs of their own. SB Gypsy now blogs at The Gypsy's Caravan, while DuWayne Braytonthe blogger formerly known around these parts as Treban Lhas emerged with the blog Traumatized by Truth. Both of these blogs are worth visiting on a regular basis, so they are now listed in the Dark Wraith BlogRing in the sidebar.
As long as the subject of good blogs is on deck, that massive thread below reminded me to take note of another blog I might have mentioned before, but which I should mention again. If you haven't been to zencomix lately, go there to see a political cartoonist whose work is becoming mainstream publication quality.
Finally from that last thread, if I haven't recently given thanks lately to OddJob, My Pet Goat, Peter of Lone Tree from BlondeSense, Auntie Roo, Lenin's Ghost, LindiBee, Dread Pirate Roberts of Dharma Bums, and Old White Lady of It's Morning Somewhere, consider it given now.
Enough with the schmaltz. That thread nearly put the Dark Wraith in his grave... which, when you think about it, is where a ghost is supposed to be, I suppose.
On to other matters.
And as I noted perhaps cryptically in a previous thread, several new features are in the offing for The Dark Wraith Forums. Whether or not they'll be wildly appreciated, I don't know. We shall see.
Say something here on this open thread. Make it intellectual, funny, strange, or downright unacceptable in mixed company (that's normal people with neo-cons in the crowd); but I must ask that rowdiness be kept to a minimum. That last thread was so huge that some of the floorboards over by the jukebox are creaking. If that thing drops into the basement, we'll have no entertainment at all except for the cat dancing again; and the last time, that got out of hand when that alley cat crashed the party and started doing Blues Brothers impersonations after getting sloshed on catnip cappuccinos. That whole scene just wasn't natural. This place could have ended up getting shut down by the Blog Decorum Police.
The Dark Wraith turns on the dance floor lights.
