Full of It

I'm going to say it. It may not be a popular opinion but what the hell, I'm going to say it anyway.

There has been so much time, energy, and emotion being devoted to a blogger's "alleged" death this past week. I never spoke with the man and can't say I have feelings either way on the issue.

What I do have a problem with is all the fellow bloggers who have devoted their energy to this. For those who may have known him I can understand the concern or anger, whichever it may be at this point. It shows the connections you can make on this site.

For all those who have left messages of concern or anger on various posts and never knew him or spoke with him what makes you care now? There are probably thousands of bloggers on here you don't bother to read or have contact with. Some in their blogs who outright say how lonely they are and are desperate to make connections. You make no effort. Yet you are so willing to jump on the emotional bandwagon and join in on the conversation. The time and energy you have spent on this would be much better suited saying hello or dropping in on a blogger who you have never interacted with before. You never know, you may actually make a connection that matters.

I would never diminish anyone's feelings who would truly be mourning for another but false emotion just for the sake of being in on the conversation ticks me off. It reminds me too much of those who slow down to look at a messy car accident. You don't care who was in the car, where they were headed, did they suffer? You just care about the messy aftermath and move on til you can slow down to gawk at the next accident.

I was just wondering what are you talking about who died ?? As a exvolt.firefighter it always suprized me how many people slowed to look .Belive it or not everyone wants to look.I think it is part of or human nature.The young girl that was hit by 3 cars on the bypass is what should concern everyone. the drivers were no billed by the grandjurry...shit they all left the scene of an accident,,,a fatal one at that!

crazy isnt it? went through that in my highschool. a friend of mine got killed in a car accident. people who never said a word to him were weeping and going to the guidance counselors for "Advice". really, they just wanted to get out of school early.

people were walking up to those of us who knew him and looking at us like we didnt "know him well enough to be sad". what a crock of shit! it turned my stomach!

as for what went on here, all i can say is that alot of strangers did step up for those who were felling the burn. that was very comforting, that people who didnt know them were still there to say "hey, itll all be cool." as for the ones who call us suckers for being fooled? fuck you, and as i have said, "they are all as deep as a puddle of water."

great post texas, interesting things to be looked at for sure. and welcome back lady!!! missed you around here. "doing the texas two step" lol.

dasher-- I am finally out of my blogging funk . I have to admit I am a bad texan. I can't two step, I don't think I have an accent, I haven't owned a pair of cowboy boots in many years, I don't find cowboys covered in mud and spitting tobacco sexy, and I hate yellow roses. I prefer white or burnt orange

towjoe-- welcome to my world. I am not going to jump on the bandwagon and mention any more of the drama on this site the last week. I hope it is truly not part of my human nature. I don't slow down at accidents and I can't look. The one time I ended up dead stopped at a traffic accident the moment I turned my head in the direction of the accident just as the paramedic wheeled an uncovered dead body 2 feet from my car window. It was a tragic sight and I wish to never see it again. I couldn't believe they wouldn't even cover the body out of respect .
