I always said this series of commentaries (under the banner of "Why We Write") would be an attempt to try and convey to FanNation the varying array of insights across the spectrum. This wasn't designed to be a once-a-week deal, but instead an occasional foray.
With that in mind...
I hope everone had the chance to read RUGator's blog yesterday, with the hyperlink to a New York Times article on the death of Dith Pran, the man responsible for the events depicted in the movie "The Killing Fields". It's a perfect companion piece to a blog from Thugmeister about the continuing mess that is the Beijing Olympics. Bravo to both of you, for reminding all of us there is life outside of this cocoon we call FanNation.
Behind J. Hova's "40/40 Club" blog, there lies someone who can move you to tears. Read all his material across this cyber-universe, and you'll see why he earns his nickname. You should all bow at his feet; he's THAT damned good.
I think the word RUGator used to describe me recently was "side-splitting". Hey, I admit at heart I'm a frustrated stand-up comic. Writing these various and sundry blogs across FanNation, you could always judge for yourselves. But, here's something you don't know: behind the jokes and the humor, there lies a bitter man.
Writing, for me, has always been a refuge from the world around us. It's the Waylon Jennings line, to be truthful:
"I've always been crazy, but it's kept me from going insane."
If you only knew the truth...
The point I'm making is, there are so many others on here who put me to shame in the writing department. Take the time and read them. And if, in some quirk of nature, you stumble upon my musings...well, keep this blog I've written here in mind. Little by little, the real Gary Cave shows up.
(See?? Now you've learned something...probably the first, and probably the LAST, time you'll see my real name in any of my blogs. I won't make that mistake again...lol)
