Who are you addressing, James?

John, I don't think you are being fair with James. Are you trying to make him look silly?

Make up your mind about the trolls. Are you axing them or not??

I've axed them by the dozen. Aparently, they think I'm "asking" them something.

You're not losing your mind. Just ignore them. They're persona non grata.

Perhaps you could have said that you had just deleted the comments rather than make him think he was losing it.

I have been in that boat where you changed the content after I posted a comment...am I on a tangent or not?

Look, just ignore them. Don't address them.

Worry not, Kelly dearest.

I have not lost any faith in John.

Did you ever read "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"?

Blogger John said...

Okay. I remember. Cool. :)

You're still cool.

Hitchhiker's Guide was great. The second book, *The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe,* was a sequel that did not disappoint.

Sadly, the series went downhill from there.

Adams died in 2001, at 49, of a heart attack, at his gym.

When I read the books in the late eighties, they were ahead of their time.

When the *Hitchhiker's* movie came out in 2005, it seemed dated, quaint, like the old Flash Gordon black-&-white's sense of sci-fi.

I saw that movie back in 2005 as well. Now I need to go read the book.
