The 10,000th Comment

In the midst of a lively discussion of the five Prince George's black Democrats who endorsed GOP Senate candidate Michael Steele in this fall's campaign, a reader named Jack posted the 10,000th comment in the 10-month history of this here blog.

Here's Jack's comment:

Marc: All I can say is that Prince George's is damned lucky Mr. Brown, one of their own, is now Lieutenant Governor. Otherwise, after that fiasco of an endorsement of Steele, followed by the incredibly stupid pamphleteering by the Republican Party, no one in Prince George's would be getting his phone calls returned by Martin O'Malley for the next four years.

As the old joke says: "What do you get when you cross a wild boar with an Irishman?"

Answer: "A pig that can hold a grudge."

My thanks to all of you who spend part of your day on the big blog, where the conversation is almost always intelligent, heated and worth a visit.

"Prince Georges's black Democrats," not Prince George's black Democrats."

No need to repeat the poster's error.

It is:

"Prince Georges's black Democrats," not "Prince George's black Democrats."


"Prince Georges's black Democrats," not Prince George's black Democrats."

You mised the open quote before the 2nd reference to Prince Georges. Jeez.

So much for my skills as a copyeditor! I'll have to remember to remove the beams from my eyes before I start pointing out the motes in those of others.

Anthony Brown notwithstanding, those P.G. Dems who backed Steele, BECAUSE he is black, will feel the sting of retribution for their mis-aligned loyalty. Tony B. will not be able to protect them, and they deserve what they get.

10,000? Is that all. I thought you got 10,000 that one day last summer when you put soccer into proper perspective for us.

This is a serious suggestion. Would it be possible on the "Posted by:" line to number the posts? It would make it easier to respond to "anonymous" and to find your place in the posts when you come back to them later in the day.

Thanks for any consideration, as well as for hosting this thoughtful blog for serious intellectuals and the rest of us wannabes who just like to come close to genius.
