hello again. did i mention that i love civilization iv: beyond the sword? oh, i did? okay then.
while i've been busy playing video games and eating breakfast sandwiches, a huge flamewar has been brewing between tdw in one corner and the tag-team of gary welsh and melyssa "miss ann" donaghy in the other. the ensuing controversy has not only boosted traffic for both blogs, but also boosted my own traffic as well (despite me not having blogged in nearly a week) as people franticly google for more information on the outspoken dominatrix. (my blog was one of the few indiana blogs to cover melyssa's story; at that time, gary welsh didn't have much use for her.)
it all began when tdw dared to suggest that this saturday's "indiana tea party" protest was... well... a bit silly. (not to mention a bit of a stretch, as far as political metaphors go.)
i already said my piece a couple weeks ago about miss ann's role in the recent tax protests, and i stand by what i wrote then. but i would be remiss if i didn't at least mention this latest flamewar, since it has brought me so much traffic in the past couple days.¶
