Now everybody knows about the Blogger's Picnic. Thanks, Nathan. I guess.

I cracked-up laughing when I read Nathan's article about the picnic. I hope the publicity doesn't scare-off too many anonymii.

Don't worry Fred, nobody really reads my column.

Yes they do. Today's column was being passed around at the picnic, and I wasn't the one who brought it.

Fred, great meeting you! Sorry for thinking you were much older and crotchety. Hmmm, to Monica we were ALL older and crotchety.

Great picnic, wouldn't you agree?
Less contentious than everyone thought it might be.

Some of the more popular blog authors really missed out.

All the bloggers read your column, Nathan!

It was fun! As always, nice to visit with you, Fred!

Good food, good drink and good company. It was great to meet you Fred. Lets do it again next year.

To whom it may concern:

1. Yes, I heard about the gathering from some of the local blogs.

2. No, I didn't bitch-slap anybody and I certainly didn't lack other things to do this weekend.

3. Yes, you all have every right to meet, or not meet, whoever you want, whenever you want.

4. No, I didn't feel invited, since Joel Mielke/Carson Park Ranger was the "host" and he has made hateful personal attacks on me before.

5. Yes, There should be another occasion for those of us who do feel excluded by the local lib-lab establishment to network in person with other local bloggers.

6. No, I don't think it's a wise idea to wait for the same people who didn't invite me this time to invite me next time, since they have a habit of purging all the nonconformist bloggers from their blog lists in the first place, mine being one of many.

7. Yes, I do have good reasons for not putting my full Christian name on this post...see point 3...much as Heraldo has good reasons for avoiding all public blogger gatherings, good bad or otherwise.

8. No, I won't organize my own blogger picnic, but I'm not adverse to being invited to one.

Is this clear enough?
