Hi Mr. M, did you take this picture at the market? This stuff looks great. I usually shop at the Farmer's Market on Friday after work, but I wouldn't mind walking over to this. Are these the same vendors or different ones? Thank you for telling if you know.

BTW, was that your article that was in the paper? That was really nice!

i did not take this photograph at the growers market. the market is small, but there is a couple nice small vegetable stands, a very impressive bake stand, and a few other assorted vendors plus live music.

Michael! The MC publishes you once and you sell out??? An apologist already???? Wait, I'm all a-quiver. I think I'm turning, too. I feel like dancin' in the streets!

This Week's High Irony ...

It is now "an honor" for a local blogger to be selected by The Morning Call for linkage at The Morning Call's Forum.

The Forum, formerly a cesspool of racism and hate (as recently as last week) has been dramatically transformed by The Morning Call into an opportunity for increased readership for local bloggers and a chance at achieving local celebrity.

In hindsight, maybe the racism and the hate wasn't all that bad, eh?

I've heard (from Bill White) that it increases readership and ad revenue.

By dangling (and delivering on) increased readership and celebrity status, The Morning Call can effectively quash most if not all all local blog dissent against The Morning Call.

Hey. Who said TMC was dumb?

They're playing local bloggers like violins.

Yep.

There sure are some "big changes" at The Morning Call lately ...

Bill Villa said...

Clarification:

I hope the scenario I described above is not in the process of happening. Time will tell.

And MM, I don't mean to imply for a second that you (or Michael Donovan, yesterday's other 1st Local Blogger Linkage Honoree) has, or will, succumb to Morning Call dissent self-muzzling in return for continued inclusion among future Forum Linkage Honorees.

I'm just concerned about losing our local independent blog voices.

I hope that never happens ... no matter how juicy the MC carrot.

Michael Donovan said...

I can promise you that I will not cast off my independent voice (although some people believe that I tow certain lines).

I was totally surprised to see the blog entry published, as I indicated on Mr. O'Hare's blog.

So, Bill, I will remain independent--minded. In fact, I am composing something right now on my own blog.

Best regards,

Michael Donovan

" ... am composing something right now on my own blog."

I look forward to reading it ...

I can't believe the paper didn't ask Michael Donovan for permission to reprint his very personal blog. Someone should send them a bill.

I have mixed feelings on the blogs being published in the paper. On one hand I think they're unfairly gaining free material for the paper. On the other, this could be a chance for some paper readers to get turned on to the local blogs and start checking them regularly - in which case, no dissent can be squashed.

TMC may dangle a carrot, but unfortunately there's no money attached to it! ;)

Nice photo Mr. M. You do nice work in color as well as B&W, but personally I prefer your portraits of people over vegetables.

Bill Villa said...

"TMC may dangle a carrot, but unfortunately there's no money attached to it! ;)"

Sarina, for some bloggers, the heady feeling of several more readers and the "honor" of being included on TMC Forum could get them as a-quiver as $ would.

Sarina said...

Good point, BV.

It also occurred to me that I suggested Donovan "send them a bill" and then thought, maybe he should send a Bill Villa to straighten things out!

Sarina said...

BV - I meant that as a compliment, of course...

Bill Villa said...

Hi Sarina (I took it as a compliment :)

but didn't anyone tell you: I'm just an angry (grr) and bitter crackpot. Plus, I'm banned from entering The Morning Call's building because I ask too many "excellent questions that deserve to be answered."

Sarina said...

I haven't heard that one. Sorry they won't admit you. You do have excellent questions.

What does any of this have to do w/ the Growers' Market?

Mrs. Dottie said...

Where's the blog administrator?
This blog has gone wild.

Bernie O'Hare said...

It makes me feel all aquiver.

Bill Villa said...

... or a-quiver, both are acceptable (and I believe the hyphen, and its inherent "pause," really adds to its infectious catchiness, if I must say so myself) ...

THE TIME HAS COME the walrus said to talk of many things. Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings. And why the sea is boiling hot. And whether pigs have wings.
