Response to Fumesucker (Reply #23)

44. I have not much use for Brooks or most oped or talking heads, except for Al Sharpton (Hi Al!)

 

Sometimes the mind plays tricks on minutia. I am sure Brooks had a salad bar in mind, and picked the wrong place, or used something he thought sounded good.
Olive Garden gives you all you can eat salad.
Charlie Brown's has a salad bar.
Unlimited shrimp at red lobster
Unlimited bread at Outback.
Unlmited soda at some places (but not 48 ounces at others).

Now is Brooks and idiot? Well, I don't agree with most of what he says, nor do I rush to publish something the odd times I agree with him
(like someone published one specific Charles Blow piece,(thinking he was anti-Obama), without realizing Charles Blow does NOT have anything to do with their views, as 99.99% he is pro-our President.

and yes, I brain farted at least twice in author's names recently, and got the name of the magazine wrong in my mind for Rockwell.
But it was because of the picture in my mind, not that I didn't know what I myself meant.
I just wrote a typo in writing.

just talking to someone just 1/2 hour ago, and this fits here-
Paul Simon was talking about Mickey Mantle when he wrote "Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio, a nation..."
He knew he was talking about Mantle not Joe D. But "where have you gone Mickey Mantle" didn't fit in the musical tone and the # five syllables needed to keep the music in tone, so he wrote in Joe DiMaggio. (Mickey Mantle had 4 not 5).

just like on gun threads
WGAS which specific gun is which. It's the thingy that shoots bullets that kill.
Minutia doesn't ruin a statement, it deflects the who thread off the important stuff.

Hey, we all are older than used to be, and if you are perfect, God bless you, but I never claimed to be perfect, nor check every statement for typos and spelling (are we in second grade where spelling is the only important thing?).

and worrying about minutia could make someone so paranoid, that they stop writing altogether just so as "not to embarrass themselves" that they wrote v for vengence instead of vendetta.
(ooh, better never write again, I might have teacher yell at me.)

imho
