    Gee whiz, pop! After only 16 years here, I had no idea!

    MiceAge posts a rather provocative DL piece earlier this week and not one post decrying it shows up on LP. That is the definition of "dead."

Criticizing MA's "inside" information of this type has been the DL section lifeblood for the last few years. But not even a chirp or peep.

Presumably any relevant discussion of that topic has already happened

    Personally, I tried to read the article when it was posted, but only got about a third of the way through it. It was simply a (poorly written) rehashing of all the breathless rumors I've seen before, without bringing anything new to the table. Why give that sort of thing the light of day?

    oooooooo........ I can't wait to make a mistake so I can correct it!
    (then of course there are those wonderful errors that have become LPisms.)
