Jumco writes: "commentary is a silly magazine full of people pretending to be serious while saying preposterous things."

Either he has read this periodical and believes this to be true or he has not and says so anyway.

Either way, it's absurd. I'm off this Blog. It has betrayed it's purpose.



UPDATE Cato's request means he is no longer an author on this blog.

  2. Good job having a sense of humor Cato. The post was about using HTML successfully in comments, and the text was a joking reference to an email chain where you joking insisted upon purchasing me a subscription to said magazine. Way to be hyperbolic!
