After the game
The clock reached zero; the horn blew; the basketball game was over. The score was the most lopsided ever, 200-01. The crowd cheered. The press interviewed the winning coach and some of the key players on the winning side. The triumphant team left the stadium and went out for pizza.
The lights were turned off, but the losing team refused to leave the stadium. The were convinced they had the winning team, the winning strategy, and they were the rightful winners; the referees were dishonest, and the scorekeeper too. They said that when the winning team left to go get pizza, they had given up, and admitted defeat.
That’s how something I heard last night on RC’s radio show struck me. Reportedly, Sharon Rondeau, writing for the Post & Email blog (a pay site that I don’t subscribe to), used my recent article, “Blog on vacation” as a jumping off point for an article whose theme was rather like the losing team saying that the winners had given up in my little story preceding. Rondeau’s point was that a number of the blogs I listed as things to read while I was on vacation, haven’t published anything lately. Some of them have never published frequently and some have been quiet of late. (Others are as busy as ever.) Rondeau takes this is a sign that the Obots have given up in disarray. I think we’re celebrating over pizza.23
