Hmmm, how to begin, again. First of all thanks to Thirdpower for extending the invitation to come back as a co-blogger on DOOT. The circumstances of my departure were not ideal. I don’t want to dwell on it, but it’s something that needs to be said.
I made several extremely crude and offensive comments(even by my standards) towards Ladd Everitt on another forum, I honestly can’t remember which one and I received a very well deserved thrashing by some people I have never met but respect a great deal nonetheless. I was given the opportunity to apologize on DOOT and several other blogs and I thought about it for a while but just could not bring myself to do it.
I was done.
I quit reading the gun blogs, I quit reading the anti blogs and I quit thinking about the issue almost entirely…almost.
I’m not going to offer excuses, I’m not going to try to justify my words because after all is said and done, I sank to a level I normally and routinely criticize.
For what it’s worth, I apologize to Ladd Everitt and his ancestry.
I need to go back to my old style of telling stories; using satire and humor rather than ad hom attacks…and that’s what I intend to do.
