Oooo. Chickenhawk. You pwned me, skippy.

Must suck, being too much of collective losers, that your type can only draw 1/5 the audience of Joe. Or, better yet, less than 1/8 the audience of Joe & Jason combined.

Still want to keep this thread going, as it's obvious you have no alternate ratings to consider. Just (non mean, heh) name calling. I figure (former?) PP media critic, Brian Lambert's blog having accurate information. If Lambert lying?

I'm game. Bring it on. Or are you a chickenhawk. All tough talk, no substance.

Hey MNchickenhawk- do listener ratings make you feel larger? Joe Souchery is a gasbag like you. His State Fair column- which is where we started- was very touching, in a
pathetic sort of way. You limp along down the road with your buddy Joe. And don't forget to keep those ratings with you for your next inspection.

I'm disappointed. I figure some guy, coming into this thread to share his rather weird obsession with a guy, spewing his obsessive hatred towards the guy, would have some examples.

So what do you enjoy listening too? Or do your types just obsess on what you hate?

No one is allowed to write anything negative about the fair. This is a state law. You can look it up.
As for myself -- on Sunday night I'll be sitting in the grandstand watching the finals of the talent competition. It will be a beautiful night, and on my left I'll see the lights of the U of M's St. Paul campus, and on my right I'll see the lights of the fair, and in front of me I'll see a huge dark sky. What's on stage won't really matter. And I'll think about how I've been doing this since I came to Minnesota more than thirty years ago. I'll think about what kind of summer it's been and how now fall is coming and it's all ending. I'll enjoy this beautiful night, saying goodbye to summer.

You lose your right to be called a cynic. Sorry, but you can't write nice things like this and be a cynic- its not allowed.
