Gilliard refuses to get it
Steve Gilliard responded by e-mail to my post objecting to his use of "gutless bitch":
"Only you seem to have women in mind. He's also a gutless pussy."
Thank you, Steve, for slapping me back in my place.
His tone is amazingly different in this pledge drive post--in fact almost womanish, er, polite.
But every dime is not just random kindness, or simply decency. It's a statement, as I said before, about your beliefs, your sense of public participation, a refusal to remain passive. Blogs are a great way to say you have a mind, opinions and will act on them.
What a clown.
