Our local newspaper, the Limerick Leader, set up a list of bloggers in the region, but they omitted Bock.
Now, I can understand why they might do such a thing. After all, original ideas and challenging, controversial views might be a bit much for the Limerick Leader.
In case you get the wrong impression, however, this hurtful snub didn’t bother me unduly, once I got over the emotional distress and calmed my hysterical sobbing a little. After all, a quick glance at Technorati rankings show the Limerick Leader lagging far behind Bock, I’m glad to say. And I can’t deny that I allowed myself a snide little laugh at that one.
Nevertheless, though inclined to be merciful, I felt I should teach them a lesson and so I took a little time off from monitoring Russia and events in the Indian sub-continent, to compile a couple of lists. I now have two new categories on my blogroll: publications and news agencies across the world.
And guess what?
You’re right: I left out the Limerick Leader.
That’ll teach ’em!
Is this a record? I had a reply from Clodagh at the Limerick Leader within 40 minutes.Ã‚ Isn’t that impressive?
Now, you’ve all felt my wrath, but you’ve also witnessed my infinite mercy, and so the Limerick Leader is listed.
