    from the comments 

    umm…i think might have been misunderstood. After reading your latest posting, i feel the need to clear the air.

    I did not mean to imply that I don’t read the busblog regulary. I have been reading the busblog daily for quite some time, prolly around the election. I check it daily, sometimes skipping days for wahtever reason, but certainly havent been an irregular reader. I am less actively following it recently, but nonetheless, peep it all the time. just less so lately.

    Secondly, I’m not sure, but i think you might have misunderstood the reason i left the quoted comments you made about instapundass. I did not leave those to suggest that you devote more coverage to the Instapundit. I left those to point out the standard you seem to hold others but not yourself. It might have been unwarranted, or even misleading, considering the differences in blogs, but i feel that there is some relevance to my point.(please don’t castrate me for that one, i’m just trying to open up the discussion)Those comments could’ve been about anybody. It was your sicere desire to hold someone else to his best that was notable about those comments.

    And thirdly, i apoligise profusely for suggesting that you change your blog or the topics of your writing. That was not my intent. I simply wanted to register my own personal dissapointment with the lack of smart political discussions by you. Not to start a fight, but simply so that you would know, on the chance that others feel the same, or that maybe it is something you think about. I wanted to ad constructive critismn, however impolite it migh have seemed, on the off chance that it would make a difference. That’s all. Especially in light of this ‘accepting advertisement’ thing, for all i knew, you might be having an internal discussion about this very issue, so I threw my thoughts out there for you to see.

    Your blog can be whatever you say it’s about, but in the end, it’s all about making the world a more just and loving place. A future that is better than the present. (and a pre-emptive -Whateves- to those who might want to shit on that).

    “…anyone could do that. anyone.”
    but nobody does it like you tony. and you know that. Atriosdoes it all day,
    npr will too on a good day. But those are all info. blabs without the inspiration.
    but you were/are different.
    you knew already what it took the folks who created AIR AMERICA so long to figure out.
    i would like to see you exploit that more.

    Shooting fish in a barrel is not what i would call it. I would call it shining the light of truth on those who would hope to cloak us in darkness.

    Tony, i can look beyond the girls, and just take the writing.

    I just like it better when you hold people accountable, and by extension, help us all.


    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.” – Nelson Mandela

    dear malatron,

    im sorry. youre absolutely right. i did misunderstand you.

    but i disagree with you about nobody being able to cover politics the way i could. my good pal matt welch covers politics better than i ever would be able to. he doesnt say Fuck as much as i probably would but he will throw a cocksucker in ther on you when youre not looking and blame hbo.

    and when he says hes a libertarian he means it so much that he’ll actually vote for libertarians.

    we’re going to the cubs game on tuesday.

    anyway, i am an idiot. im sorry. i overracted.

    fine, politics it is.

    it wont make any difference though.

    but if it can provide for fodder to put more pictures of miss universe contestants next to then fine.

    charles + danielle hates it when i write about politics + flagrant
