Re: O'Conner retires

Th or Notth

A number of your previous posts have taken people to task for their careless use of purported facts or questionable sources. Don't you think your description of the Laura Bush incident follows the same pattern and leaves the reader with some very incorrect perceptions, eg, you didn't even mention that the so-called boyfriend was in a different car.

Re: O'Conner retires

Oh come now. I gave one guy a hard time because he was a troll. I gave another guy a hard time because he decided to start pissing in my morning coffee for no apparent reason.

However, in this instance the information I provided was factual and from perfectly good sources. I didnt mention the odd but true fact that the boyfriend happened to be in the car she hit, not hers, although thats a good example of how small some small towns really are.

So what exactly is the problem you'd like me to solve? Are you unhappy that I berated a troll or that I gave it back to someone who started a pissing contest with me? Or just passing the time away?

Notth,

I have no particular problem that I'd like you to solve, have no interest in your pissing contests and I am not just passing the time away.

I'm simply trying to point out, in as civil a manner as I can, that your use of "facts" can easily lead the casual reader (fortunately there aren't many here) to come to erroneous conclusions.

Why is it "odd" that the person killed was in a different car - Laura was riding with a girlfriend. BTW, the person killed and Laura were friends and classmates. I wasn't aware that anyone had shown them to be anything other than that. The part of the police report regarding charges was blank because none were filed.

Ok then I still dont know what we're doing here. Everything I said was true by record. What erroneous conclusions could be drawn from what I said that would matter even a little bit?

Its odd that someone in an accident would strike and kill someone they know. I pointed out that this is simply a factor of small town life where there simply aint that many people you dont know. As far as romantic links, many have been suggested, but the last thing I'm interested in is establishing any connection between them, or proving one, as I cant for the life of me figure out why that would matter.

You'll note I made no opinion, didnt say anything about people running stop signs at 50mph and walking away without being charged, made no inferences whatsoever. A couple of people said they thought something like that happened and I simply confirmed that thought.

Theres a big difference between stating a series of well established and documented facts, and saying things that are simply not true, then blasting everyone with four letter words when you're asked for sources and cant come up with them. Particularly when the guy that cant come up with rational sources VOLUNTEERED that he would.

I'm still left with the feeling that you're still looking for something here as I cant understand what the problem is. Why dont you tell me what erroneous conclusions could be drawn from what I said, why it matters, and what I should have said differently to result in clearer conclusion drawing?

You'd be surprised what downing a few cold Dixie longnecks would inspire chicks to do - speaking strictly of the old, old days - of course.

Before my -heh, heh - 28 yr old er ah arrangement.

Oh and Ben Graham, Boglehead, Bernstein, slice and dice.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated...

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Seems to me there IS a "right to privacy"...
