Maybe I'm awful

But I still smile when Gary Groth effortlessly puts a hack writer in his place. Welcome to blogging, Gary. We needed you.

I'm not a curmudgeon. I'm actually quite an optimist. I just can't stand crap.

You are awful, Joe. That guy's comment about Peter David wasn't terribly interesting or intelligent. He was just sniping at someone he doesn't like. If he had a serious criticism, then I might care about what he says.

Sorry, Joe, but you just lost some of the cool points you got with your CBG articles.

Speaking only about Groth's convention diary (the reason for his hatred of Peter David has less to do with either man's work and taste than it does the death of Carol Kalish), it's not all that different from any other pro's con diary I've seen, except it's about MoCCA as opposed to San Diego or Chicago.

Totally unrelated note but I noticed in your archives that you've posted some sketches from various industry people and even some schoolkids. I have some from various people, none of them professional. If you're interested I could send them in for you to take a look at. They might be good for a laugh if nothing else.

He WAS, however, SPOT FUCKING ON. That needs to be appreciated. It was needless, it was quick, it was brutal, but it was TRUTH with all caps.

Haw! If that lost me cool points, I've got no need for them.

Exactly! You don't get that kind of self-awareness in your everyday hack.

And the Kalish thing, that's why PAD the Grudge-Holder hates Groth. I'm sure Groth already didn't like PAD.
