We apologize, as usual, for the paucity of posts. The holidays have not been kind to either our creativity or various internal organs. Fortunately, our varied colleagues and commenters have taken up the mantle of ombudspersonality in our stead, entirely unbidden.
We approve of this, on the grounds that it saves us the trouble of doing anything other than browsing for the latest and greatest comments on this blog, and then repackaging them into our occasional column.
However, now that the haze and hangover have abated slightly, we would like to note these displays from our respected colleagues must be applauded. It is wholly appropriate that others have gotten into the (neutral) spirit of the season, given the important developments here at 3B!
A related imploral: you will, I hope, forgive the Management for not as yet completing the usual Pitchfork evisceration in a timely manner. Pinko and Geenie have their hands full, one could say, dealing with effluent other than the P’Fork list itself.
You may now flay the official resident Ombirdspersonpantsmoose in comments for dereliction of duty and gin consumption beyond the realm of mortal sanity. We should also note there may have been a grapefruit wedge involved, but our carefully studied laziness and indifference will not permit full disclosure.
Any and all complaints against other members of staff shall be treated as unfounded slander, and dealt with by New York Law Firm through the usual channels.
We suspect, however, that they might have their hands full at the moment.
