Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Mudcat kind of removed the need to post the bit I wrote yesterday but was never able to get into the thread:
Ya know, fellow MOABites, sometimes BS isn't enough to sustain itself. I think this is one of those times. Especially since our Tweed and Khandu are both down in this area and were largely responsible for kicking MOM into gear. Then there's others of us sitting down here in areas adjacent to the storm damage, and the fact that the entire nation is learning through worsening waves of information just how awful the damage was from Katrina.
I don't want MOAB to be dispirited or lose momentum because our hearts aren't in it. I would like to suggest that we maybe give MOM a rest for about 23 hours. She'll survive if she drops down near the bottom of the page, and a little introspection won't hurt any of her acolytes.
Know what I mean?
A moment of silence, in the great continum as far as Gluon and the Freds and even the Shatnerites are concerned, is but a blink of an eye. But that eye needs to watch and shed a tear right now.
I'll see you guys back here tomorrow some time.
We're back now, a day later, the thread has experiences a defacto moment of silence for many hours, and we've had time to assess some of what is going on and needs to be done.
Do we MOABites need to regroup now, and locate all of our regular participants? Where are Tweed and Khandu? How is Bee-Dubya-Ell doing? Over here to the west Texas wasn't impacted by Katrina, but the slop-over to the east hit all the way to Georgia with tornadoes.
Amos, is Gluon parked in your yard? Maybe he needs to go sniff out some of our regulars? (i.e. do you have emails for any of these folks?)
