Speak Truth to Power
A few of my incoming links have me thinking about some things this morning.
First, Stan Goff over at Feral Scholar posted my whole entire post on the War on Women in Nicaragua and the recent of election of leftist Daniel Ortega. There is some brilliant commentary over there which is well worth reading. Thanks, Stan!
Finally, this neocon woman blogger growls that my blog is the “most drab blog she has ever seen,” then moves on to devote an entire blog post of her own to a sort of in-depth analysis of a side-issue of a side-issue of side-issue she found in a comments section here, finally flouncing off in a huff calling us “feminazis.”
You know, I have observed that those who are most virulently critical of the technical or graphic acumen of other bloggers often don’t seem to have much going on in their own blogs, however — in their own, or someone’s mind — graphically lovely and technically state-of-the-art theirs might be. I asked someone who knows me well whether I should, like, spend a bunch of time making my blog look all like Pandagon or Twisty’s Place, now that I am getting all of this attention. “No,” was the response. “That would be like Carla Emery trying to make her work look more like Real Simple.” Only some reading will get that without clicking on the links (and maybe not even then!), probably only a very few, but if you do get it, well, I’m betting you are saying it’s not only a great compliment, it’s true. And I’m proud of myself, drab and all. :)
