Responses to Jim's Email
I'm so sorry you had to receive that truly hateful email from Jim in Mass. What he completely overlooks (aside from your wonderful picture-toons) is that there is a very real kind of originality involved in compiling web sources in a certain way. You are doing a huge amount of work for your readers in searching for just the right articles in each category to put on your site - information that will both keep us informed and keep us from despairing as well.
I would be bereft if you didn't do what you do!
Please be encouraged. Keep up the good work. Jim's issues are just that: HIS.
I run a website too, and I know that it just sucks to get hate mail ala the version that you shared on your site today. you and I have the same response: publish the wanker's words and let everyone know the kind of sh_t you have to deal with! I enjoy your site, hope you keep it up, and have contributed financially towards that end!
YOU GO GIRL!
Might as well shout it to
the world - Jim's not getting "any" at home.
MY FRIEND, I DON'T KNOW WHAT "JIM" IS ABOUT, UNLESS HE IS JEALOUS THAT YOU HAVE A SITE THAT GETS THE ATTENTION HE COVETS!
JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT YOURS IS THE BEST SITE OF IT'S KIND FOR MY MONEY (THAT'S WHY I SUPPORT YA)
KEEP 'HACKIN' AWAY!
FROM THE LEFT EDGE OF THE WORLD, WE LUV YA
JOHN (DELUDED YET FAITHFUL READER)
Thanks for all your reactions! It is so rare that I get a negative e-mail that I felt obligated to post it. Plus, it was the first time I was called a hack and just had to share!

George W and the
Kingdom in his Dense Skull
By: Hubert Wilson
Excusing the Vietnam War from which he ran!
Absent the truth from which he does hide!
Only if admiring a homely beagle!
Alleging all others to be only derisive!
Notable in all of history -
Incompetence mystery -
Calamity greater than even anything in protohistory!
Too Many Max Headrooms
Television's news networks
brought all of their punditry and electronic firepower to the Democratic
presidential primary coverage on Tuesday, but left viewers yearning for the
simplest of things.
Say, a reporter with a microphone who could walk into a bar in rural Kentucky and ask some voters what was on their minds.
