Yesterday in BlogoMania 1, we lost a blogger. LVCI was tossed out of the ring by Bernie O'Hare, and vows not to return. LVCI explains his reason to stop blogging on a post called Fi-ni-to. The match started with Jon Geetings labeling both LVCI and myself as old nay-sayers, with no positive suggestions for the valley. This is when O'Hare jumped in the ring and helped Geetings throw LVCI over the ropes. Geetings later justified his ageism by claiming that back in October, on a third blog, I called him a young Democrat, dismissing his opinion. I have requested assistance in this dispute from the AARP. The third blogger was presenting an article that Geetings found about real estate. I thought perhaps after 35 years in the business locally, I might know more than Geetings found on the internet. In the past I have praised a local landlord who is younger than Geetings. My use of "young" and "democrat" were adjectives. What I dismiss is the importation of all these "solutions" to Allentown. Geetings and associates think that if they find and present some ordinance passed by another city, that they are doing something positive. They refer to this process as harvesting idea's. LVCI and myself, over the years, have seen dozens of idea's harvested and enacted, to no improvement. A good idea in Charleston, may not be so good here. There never was a shortage of idea's, there has been a deficiency in the implementation of existing policy. Anyway, time for my prunes.
