Good morning lusty soldiers. After an evening of typing and drinking tequila sunrises (I had grenadine in the fridge - who knew?), your commanding officer is feeling a bit slow on the uptake. So let's keep the noise down to a minimum.
Just a quick update - I now have sent emails to 43 comrades and I am checking back on Megan's last post to harvest...er, I mean recruit...more fighters.
Right now I must say I am ready to put ON STRIKE next to my name. After poking around a little online (with an assist from Chicago Bureau, my brother in this fucking -30 degree icy bullshit city) it has become quite clear that there is something rotten in the state of Gawker. To read more, may I suggest this. I am sure that many of you also saw that Greg was let go. So was Liz Gorman, staff photographer.
Big Head DC also picked up on this, and includes a poll about whether readers would like to see Megan contribute there. Read all about it.
The good news is that since the changes over at Gawker, visits and comments seem to be down (please correct me if I am wrong about this), so maybe this crazy boycott thing will make an impression. We certainly have among us some of our most prolific and hilarious (i.e. the people that make the site worth reading in the first place) commenters. In the meantime, it is still okay to view, comment on and Digg Megan's farewell post. But the Nevada caucuses are dead to us!
For those that missed it, Megan has started a new blog since her dismissal - chaoticmegan.blogspot.com. Pay the girl a visit. And for the love of Satan if you are in the DC area go out with the girl tonight and buy her a drink!
