And revenge is still sought, penance starts again
Cast into a trance and the nightmare carries on... --Iron Maiden.
Back in January, we here at KAR noted a hit on our referrer list from Jay Esmay's blog. We found that this Esmay, a candidate for Congress or something, had graciously included us on his blogroll. What's more, the more we looked into Esmay's political philosophies, the more we were taken by him. At the time we gave him a shout out, welcoming him to the blogosphere, and noting our approval of his blogroll (of which KAR was the cornerstone).
Now here we are 4 months later, and the KAR link has been removed from Jay Esmay's blog. To make matters worse, of the 10 or so blogs included on that blogroll, two are dead.
This is an outrage.
I can think of 17 or 18 reasons why a candidate for office might want to avoid any association with our fine blog. But it matters not.
We do not tolerate snubs.
We do hold grudges.
And we are puerile.
Because, it's all about us.
Therefore, from this day forward, along with our usual vitriolic mayhem, we will also be dedicating ourselves to defeating Jay Esmay's candidacy for whatever it is he's running for.
And yes, that means another name change.
Henceforth KAR shall be known as "Dump Jay Esmay". A new header is coming soon.
