So much here, now, seems to be a kind of competitive identity group-grievance and/or competitive identity group-back-slapping exercise. It's so useless, demeaning, too, as it assumes a profound lack of self-confidence, pride, intelligence. It has to be off-putting, at the least, to anyone considering this venue.

I hope people will abandon this unnecessary, deadening style of discussion and debate.

Our Salon, so lively and potent at its onset and for quite a time after, would be wholly reinvigorated, a place of surprise and thought and enjoyment for many once again, and with new, interesting participants, and grateful longstanding members.

Songbird, 

I'm sorry, I missed one of your comments. 

Kenny/Scanner died a couple of years ago, I think of throat cancer. It might be longer ago than that.

Thank, Kosh.  When you asked, I kinda figured.  I'm glad I knew him; sure you are too.  Bless ya.

I’m sorry I didn’t go down to meet him. We lived a few hours apart. While we knew each other, which is pretty early after I started blogging in 2010, we hardly ever missed each other’s posts. 

There have been a bunch of other OS deaths since. I don’t know who you followed.
