Blaming the uncle for the sins of the nephew

I've had my shares of disputes with David Anderson. Politically, h tends to flirt with the edge of moonbattery (although this piece cut him quite a bit of slack with me), and he's got a few spelling tics that really bug me no end. (It's "occasionally," David, not "occassionally.") But despite several nasty blow-ups, I've never really wished him or his any ill will.

Until now.

David has a nephew. He's rather fond of him, but I have a shameful confession. I spent a great deal of time last year wanting to see him die. Die in the most brutal, violent, horrid fashion. And I still do.

David, I still mostly like you, and kinda respect you. Just don't ever introduce me to your nephew, OK? I'm sure he's a fine, decent, kind, funny human being. But he did just a little too good a job last year...

(In an odd aside, Michael Chiklis, the star of The Shield, is probably Andover, Massachusetts' most famous son, a town I've spent a great deal of time in myself...)

Heh. With a filmography like that, the presumption would have to be that he's talented and good.

New season of the Shield starts tonight at 10 on FX. Best show on TV. I wonder if Antoine Mitchell will play any role this season. Or Glenn Close's character, for that matter.

I am going to have to give Anthony the link to this one, he will get a kick out of it. Not to mention that is about the nicest thing McGehee has ever said about an Anderson. Hehe... ;-)

You mention his spelling problems in the same sentence where you had a problem spelling the two letter word, "he." Now, that's funny.

One should not comment on anothers spelling errors, when one misses the letter "e" in "He"... Sorry, Jay, but I had to point that out.

largebill, do all typos count as spelling errors, or are they a separate category? I'm sure JT knows how to spell "he", but I think his point is that David doesn't know how to spell "occasionally."

Still, you're right, it is rather funny.

McGehee, you too? Although, for me it was more of a pre-teen crush, when I didn't really understaidn why I liked her. I think I cried when "Mary" went blind.
