Dangle Swallows FOOT

What was I thinking yesterday when I posted an entry calling my friend, Ted Rall, a "meddling louse and second-rate hack" and suggesting that he made a syndication deal of mine go sour? The fact is I don't have any idea what happened with the Voice way back when or what caused the art director's turnaround. Editors and art directors have a right to change their minds 180 degrees whenever they want, and they do, and it's irresponsible––even in a blog with zero standards––to make such an accusation. Ted called me on it and he's right. I feel like an double-extra jerk too, considering that he was kind enough to include me in his anthology of weekly cartoonists, Attitude, which is a cool book.

Well, there I go. Finally do a little blogulating and pull a jerkoff move in the first session at the keyboard. The truly shocking thing is that even though TrouBLOGtown generates only an average of fifteen hits a year, Ted happened to find out about it on the one day that I decide to go and defame him.

Well, that's only 15 people who click on your blog, it doesn't count those of us who read it via a newsreader like Bloglines. So hey, I figure you have at least 20 readers. :)

Make that 21. If you're going by weight, 21.75.

Quit whining. ;-}

Are you going to have to put together a legal defense fund?

Oh for Christ sake, be a man dammit. You kneed someone in the balls and now you regret it? Are you wearing nylons under your jeans man?
