Blogs are for blockheads.

Blogs, like this one, is just for the semi-illiterate and lazy. Blogs are thoughtlessly composed by the impulsive and reactionary. Hastily written with no fact checking. Opinion with no scholarship. Just stupid scribbling on an old model PC.

Here is my point; newspaper journalist typically come from accredited journalism schools. People and institutions capable of gathering raw information and then print it in a grammatically simple and correct fashion. Filtered through fact checker and editors. Possibly the most expensive way to present information but the reader knows the paper and journalist have done their homework. Composers of blogs, like mine, are just spume out willy-nilly and composers hope no one is checking facts. Most blogs could be considered as creative fiction. Something cute but not true. Something entertaining but not accurate. Something outrageous but not rational.

Read your local daily newspaper instead. And for Pete sakes turn off talk radio. Bottom line, I love the smell of news print. Think about it. You can’t wrap fish in a blog. That’s 30 for now.

I come from a family who migrated from the parched red dirt Plaines of southern rural Oklahoma. Migrating to blue collar working class community of East Los Angeles. There is where I was born. I am Mr. Writermelon. I can only write what my grammar and spell checker allows. I am neither profound nor profane. Boy howdy! Send comment to:
