Alarming News

Rumors of my demise…

are greatly exaggerated.

On a sidenote, I am sad to see Urban Elephants call it a day. And I agree with Azi (at the link above) that there is “a void in the area of city-based, right-leaning blogs”, in particular, I’d say, those that focus on local politics. If someone would like to start such a blog, perhaps in the community format of UE, I would definitely be interested in helping them. Like I noted in Politicker’s comment section, I am not really interested in local politics so wouldn’t do it myself, but I can see something like that succeeding in a big way.

“Think globally, act locally”… I always say!

Pioneers are the ones found littering the frontier, dead or dying, with arrows in their backs.
Scott’s efforts, if nothing else, took a risk to effect change.
I feel bad he wasted his efforts and energy in NYC. New Yorkers just don’t care. They’re too wealthy, as a whole, to care.
Those middle class folks who do or did care, left for more reasonable pastures.

Like everything else that has gone wrong these last seven years, I blame George Bush for Urban Elephants demise!
