If there was ever an antidote to wanting to have a super successful blog this is it.
Jeff Goldstein of Protein Wisdom has quit blogging again. Since he recently overhauled his site, I suspected that the abrupt, initially unexplained decision had something to do with the nut job and pervert Deborah Frisch. As it turns out, it does. From Jeff:Frisch has once again — with no provocation — stepped up her assault on me, my site, my family and my friends.Frisch is known all over both sides of the political blogosphere for her disjointed, racist, hateful and pedophilic musings and for continual harassment of her former colleagues in higher education, but for some reason known only to her and to the person she serves [ed. that would be Satan], she has fixated on Jeff and his family, which includes a pre-schooler.
Which means I am simply going to redouble me efforts to put a stop to it.
I'm not a regular reader of Jeff's site, so I missed this when things went down last year, but I cannot think of anything as frightening as someone taking an avowed interest in harming my child.
Anyway...make sure you click over to Protein Wisdom (it helps pay the lawyer bills needed to keep Frisch at arms length.) You can read the timeline so far here, or the Wiki entry here.
Reading about incidents like this only makes me appreciate my readers all the more. So to Walt, Steve P, Tully, Pat, Simon, C Stanley, Entropy, Tony S, Michael vdG, and all the others who have taken time to post your comments on what I've written, thank you for not being fucking insane.
