It's a small world after all

You know, New York has some 8 million or so people in it, but it really is just a small town sometimes. I was IMing with my friend Erin this morning (or should I say one of my Erin friends. I know THREE girls named Erin. Is is that common a name or is that just a coinky dink?)

Anyway, I used to work with this Erin and I literally haven't seen in her in almost two years. So, we're doing the IM thing and decided we have to meet for drinks next week, blah blah.

About three hours later, I'm heading out to lunch, and who do I pass on 55th Street, heading to her bank? ERIN.

Apparently, we now work about 4 blocks apart, which neither of us had realized before. So, we hadn't seen each other in ages, IM in the morning, and boom - huh, what the hell are you doing here?

How weird.

Youre meeting her for drinks. Why am I not at all surpised?

Why does it not surprise me that you are shocked at drinking, bally? Is that a sin in your little closed world too?

yeah free speech, freedom and all that. But if bally107 is so disgusted and insulted by everything and everyone, why does bally107 still keep coming back here?

I will go on any web site I want and make any comments I want. That is typcal liberalism - shut down someone whos views you dont agree with, shout them down, because G-d forbid someone who likes George W Bush get allowed to express an opinion, right? Isnt that the way it works with you people?

No, Bally, that's not the way it works. If you stop for a second and think, I told you before that I look forward to many debates with you. I'm sure others might even feel the same way if there was actually any substance to what you had to say. But all you do is sit back and insult JBK for having drinks or chastising his choice of restaurant. Until you have something to really say, go away.

And in case you didn't see it before, I replied to one of your comments that I would LOVE it if you created your own blog. Stand up for yourself and say what you have to say instead of just sitting back and hiding behind some name that you can't be connected to. Or do you do that because you don't have enough convictions behind your empty arguments?

No one is denying bally107 the right to free expression. My confusion is WHY bally107 would continue to participate in a conversation with people who bally107 clearly finds offensive, doing things that bally107 clearly does not agree nor approve of. See?

It's amazing to me how a nice post about meeting an old friend out of the blue can be turned into nasty comments about drinking?

I just love how no one wants to deny me free speech but they sure do all want to stop me from commenting on whatever I want to, or they demand I write a blog myself. Get over yourselves.
