The Jury Talks Back

Intermission

I’m going to be taking a break from both Blogs for a while, folks.

I hope to be back, but I’m honestly not sure.

Update (5:25pm 4/11/10): After giving it time, I have decided to make my departure from the blogs permanent.  I enjoyed my time both here and at Patterico’s, and I wish you all the best.  I just don’t feel as though I can remain here anymore.

Take care folks.

  1. Why, dude? Few comment here, so I can understand the ‘what’s the point’ sentiment, but I think you should just ignore that feeling.

    If it’s the deal with PW, just ignore it. There will always be liars, and defending your honor to people who don’t have much just gives them the power to goad you repeatedly.

    Or for all I know, your laptop broke down and I’m not on target. Hope you keep blogging.

  2. Well, ya hurry on back now, y’hear?

    For what it’s worth, I had a moment like this a couple summers ago with this blog: I just got sick of the bickering that was so prevalent at the time (with an influx of overly-argumentative new commenters).

    I came back (obviously), but it wasn’t a foregone conclusion. If you decide not to, I (for one) certainly wouldn’t hold it against you. But you’d be missed by a good many folks here, I’d imagine.

  3. Yeah, the Texas posts have been sparse for a long time. It’s all Washington, Washington, Washington. Not that I’m wishing for Joe Horn to shoot anybody but you know ….

  4. Is this because nk has been shopping his nephews as prospective bridegrooms?

  5. Yeah. It’s one of those “the human mind can only stand so much” things, as far as I can tell.

    People are crazy, times are strange/
    I’m locked in tight, I’m outta range/
    I used to care, but things have changed.

  6. I am running a thread at the main blog where I am requiring that there be no personal insults.

    I think it’s actually going pretty well.

    I wonder if that would help.

  7. i think Scott is just a quitter, so he can forget about being thrown in my pool.

  8. Not to step on anyone’s ego, but there are a few prolific commenters on the main page that probably could contribute a few posts to ‘The Jury Talks Back’.

    I guess it’s probably the case that they are continually being invited? I’m surprised this side of the blog hasn’t caught on yet, but it will with enough time.

  9. a thread at the main blog where I am requiring that there be no personal insults.

    that seems like it’s a good general rule, albeit time-consuming to enforce.

    I’m surprised this side of the blog hasn’t caught on yet, but it will with enough time.

    I feel bad from time to time that I don’t post as often as I’d like to.

    I’m going to be taking a break from both Blogs for a while, folks.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  10. I hope you come back, Scott.

  11. Me too, but only after he’s gone on a week-long binge in Las Vegas and found a girlfriend. Not necessarily in that order.

  12. After taking stock, it really does seem that my departure from these blogs will be permanent.

  13. Bye Scott best wishes, all the best

  14. Scott, my daughter will be taking the MAPs this week so I’m all hers. But after this Friday, you come to Chicago and we’ll hang out in tapas bars and stay drunk until our livers fail.

  15. You’ll be missed!

  16. Well… fuck.

  17. Scott needs to get himself next to a woman. And then, nothing else matters.

  18. There’s a song about it.

  21. Scott, you’ll be missed.

  22. Scott — Change your mind and I’ll be glad to see you again, and while gone, I’ll miss you. Be safe, or be very careful!
