I am sitting here wondering where it all went wrong. We were having so much fun!
First came the Miles Mathis attack, which though hurtful contained enough truth so as to be taken seriously. That spawned a review of some of the work done, and indeed I have made mistakes with photo analysis, mistakes of enthusiasm, but still, mistakes. So far five “twins” have disappeared, and one “Zombie” has been affirmed, and the work continues. None of that work is hidden, only not linked now on the right hand side. It is also disclaimed as error. (It is a bit soothing that one of our twins, Rihanna, will be affirmed shortly.)
As a result of that we lost “Straight,” upset that the work is not given the respect he feels it is due. It’s a legitimate failure of minds to meet. His spot is open. I miss him.
Then I came upon Vexman, whose work will not be seen here anymore … I don’t care if it is a labor of truth or fantasy or deliberate deceit, it has cast such a pall on this blog that I realize I have the power to make it go away, and can, and will. I am not a person who enjoys “power” per se, but I am one who enjoys the search for truth, life, music, humor, and we have none of that at present.
I left the following comment on Vexman’s last piece, part 3 of his series on Russian history and Jews and unspeakable horror. Since the comment will disappear with the post, I re-post it here:
Holodomor/Holocaust … interesting use of language. I have to stop and wonder at this piece of history, how it could happen in a vacuum. Just as the idea of 700,000 people perishing by means of gunshot in the back of the head, it has the sound of fantasticism, designed to horrify and enrage. We are not in charge of our own history, and so don’t know the truth of events of 15 years ago, yet we are asked to believe these tales of murder and famine … on what basis? I am also offended that “Jews” is being used in the pejorative. I want this whole series to be done and forgotten.
I realized after I wrote that that indeed I can make the whole series be done, if not forgotten. Vexman has his own blog. I urge that he move the whole body of work there, and those of you who want to read it go there. It is not being denied to you, only denied at this venue.
I want blogging to be fun again. Good bye, Vexman. I will catch your work at Vexman’s Thoughts.
