I received an email as to whether or not we'll have 2012 Insanies ... the answer is yes, but in light of recent events they have been delayed and require some updates on the material I had already put together. Who woulda thunk 2011 was such a relatively sane year in retrospect??!! 2011 Insanies
As of sometime yesterday-to-today, if you look at the right sidebar, there is not a single post relating to Gary Taubes ... and amazingly ... or Jack Kruse! The second and third posts are interesting late climbers. Someone -- I think in the cycling world -- is stealthily linking to my blog. Thanks, but I wish I knew who you were! The #2 post as of today was written on Nov. 7, and received little attention until over a month later which basically never happens here, especially nowadays.
Here in 2012 we are talking about a legitimate scandal involving not one, not two, but three relatively big names in the greater community associating with the notorious neo-Nazi, white supremacist, KKK Grand Wizard, etc. David Duke. My what a long way from Gary Taubes' hangover fueled asshattery at AHS11, and eclipsing Kruisegate at the last minute.
Just chatting it up a bit here. So yes, I do plan on a 2012 Insanies Awards, and yes, I do plan on a roundup post of sorts but that, too, shall be delayed.
Happy New Year everyone! Thank you all for reading, your support, your humor (really one of the best characteristics of the participants here, laughter keeps you young and sane and I thank you for that even when discussing some serious issues), your intelligence, for challenging me, and for your enduring ability to think for yourselves in the face of dogmatic groupthink all around.
Here's to a healthy and happy 2013 for all. Evie :-)
