An excellent writer.

In over his head.

Funeral money sucks.

Egomania, his main attribute.

He won't be here long.

Good riddance to bad blood.

He's an ass.

He's not an ass.

Let him write...it's his right to and whether or not you agree with his opinions his Blog helps spread local news around the community. He seems to be more than willing ro allow those of a different opinion to post.

There also seems to be plenty of people at the ready to critic him. Heck, one guys blog that i also enjoy seems to be dedicated to critiquing him as of late.

In any event his blog is getting people talking about topics that they should of been talking about over a year ago. Which is GREAT, people need to talk more about important issues and less about the trash you see around this message board.

May be of interest. Merely some commentary about a recent review of Rod Dreher's book.

http://contrapauli.blogspot.com/2013/07/anoth...

Also I include a link to Rod Dreher's 2005 short story "A Ghost in the Family". It also contains a lot of local St. Francisville material, and it's supposed to be a true story.

The ghost isn't mentioned in his book "The Little Way of Ruthie Leming".

I have read most all of Dreher's blogs but have not seen any comments from other readers. If there are comments, please tell me how to find them. Thanks.

Rod has repeatedly stated he did not read the Charter. He was not interested in the Charter or what was going on in our Parish. Now he claims to have read it and is now an expert on all politics in this parish.
He continuously puts very biased and slanted information on the blog.
Who has he decided to promote as Parish President?

All the comments that have been posted to Rod Dreher's blogs that he hasn't deleted are right there where it says "No comments" or "1 comment" or however many comments there are. If it doesn't say anything about comments at all, it means he has turned off the Blogger feature that let people post comments on earlier posts.

Dreher's blog seems to be a place where he tells you what to think rather than letting you tell him what you think, and it looks like his hysterical threats to sue his neighbors over their opinions has made it even easier for them to go along with his program, so it's probably a win-win situation for all concerned.

If you're not scared of getting chased off the grumpy old codger's lawn like the neighbor's cat, why not ask him about his comment policy directly the next time he lets anyone make one?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
