Perpetuating a Fraud

If I could be anyone in the world, I’d be the person described in this blog post. She sounds cool what with that community garden, bird sanctuary, and borrowed solar oven. A person like that has friends because those types of things don’t happen without the efforts of many.

To be featured by Ruth Tobias, who has written for, among other places*, The Boston Globe, is most assuredly an honor. When I stalked her on Facebook and claimed her for my network, my in box filed with reverent salutations and requests for friendship from those who otherwise wouldn’t give me the time of day. I could feel my social e-capital rising via the express elevator. Of course, this is something of which I am certain Ruth is unaware or at least would dismiss.

When I am famous for being famous, because I can’t be famous for much else, I will look back at this, my second (the first being relatively unnoticed by the masses) bloggy shout-out. Thank you Ruth. You made me look like chiltepins.

(If you visit her blog, please be sure to say “hello” for me!)

    I remember a few years ago (aren’t we at the 10th anniversary of Harper’s Ferry?), I made some self-satisfied comment to you about there being no good in criticizing the status quo without doing what we can to support the . . . wait for it . . . alternative. You retorted in some classic RKLB way and then went on to become all the stuff I preached about while I became the paragon of the status quo. I now get to warm in your radiance (at some considerable remove, alas) and am gladder of that than anything I can think of. Well, anything except the wag of my dog Oliver’s tail when I come in the door.
