The Reluctant Writer: Something Else to do When I Should Be Writing

April 19, 2009

Lost news? Try a cyber-cure.

Feeling a little brain dull lately? 

Missing your daily dose of acumen, humor and critical appraisal?  Like you know something must be stimulating or waggish or stupid, but you just can’t seem to put your thoughts into words or pictures? 

You may be suffering from State-Poor Blood. 

But don’t worry — you’re not alone. Since the recent axe-waving at The State s’News, a veritable epidemic of lackadaisy has spread across our fine state with the virulence of a pox and the veracity of a Pickens County STD.

But all is not lost.

Through the miracle of modern technology you can regain the crisp edge to your thoughts that can only be cultivated by an erudite commentary, a clever caricature or an artistic assessment that basically just pisses you off.  Why suffer smudged fingers when, with the click of a button, you can avail yourself of all the news that is fit to be blogged.  Brad Warthen, Robert Airial and Jeffery Day are the antidotes to local intellectual dotage, and they are conveniently available in child-proof packages located at http://bradwarthen.com/, http://robertariail.com/ and http://carolinaculturebyjeffreyday.blogspot.com/

  2. I never knew I’d miss Brad Warthen’s commentary, but I sure do. Thank you for the links, Cindi! I knew about Jeffrey Day’s blog, but I didn’t know where a girl could get her Warthen and Arial fixes. I’m off to check those out right now (though I should be working).
