Comments on: The last huzzah? News, but not the serious kind Fri, 16 Dec 2011 14:56:44 +0000 hourly 1 By: FriscoJohn Fri, 16 Dec 2011 14:56:44 +0000 It’s not pining, it’s passed on. This blog is no more. It has ceased to be. It’s expired and gone to meet its maker. This is a late blog. It’s a stiff. Bereft of life, it rests in peace. If they hadn’t nailed it to the perch, it would be pushing up the daisies. It’s rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-blog.

By: uncarastus Fri, 16 Dec 2011 14:49:34 +0000 As a last post, I will leave this OE Blog with a feeling of sadness, gratitude, and a bit of bitter sweetness. A lot of joy, a whole bunch of laughter, and a feeling of bereavement, also.

Bob, I must say that after years of struggling with the Great Spam Filter (notwithstanding),

Thank you, Mr Blog Guy, Robert, BG, Bob, Brain Without Compare, Mr Basler, Author, and last but surely not least, Friend, for letting my twisted thoughts to be aired!

As my last parting statement, I have to say, using the words of the Grateful Dead, “What a strange strange trip it’s been!”

I’m very sorry to hear about the blog closing down. It was truly an excellent part of my day. You’re hilarious, and a great guy. I will miss you here, and all the fun and very witty participants.

I wish there were a way to keep hanging out with all of you!

I hope your next endeavor will also be tons of fun!
All the Best,

Thanks for sharing your great sense of humor. This has been a great and unique blog. I will miss it. So will those yuckster higher-ups at Reuters.

By: Corbeau Fri, 16 Dec 2011 08:39:50 +0000 I only posted a few times, way back when, but I’ve always read. Wish I had become a part of the community.

Good luck, Blog Guy! Thank you for the fun!

By: vwgal Fri, 16 Dec 2011 06:49:29 +0000 I hope we will see another kind of Oddly Enough blog. I may not post often, but read every day. I am sad that this is going away. By the way, is there a reason, that I may have missed?

By: inebgreen Fri, 16 Dec 2011 01:39:33 +0000 Farewell Blog Guy, and Goodbye to all the friends I have come to know and love through this blog. The world will be a sadder place without this source of cheer and camaraderie.

At least I will have contact (through Facebook) with George. Mayhap he will keep me posted of the adventures of my fellow commentators, and our leader – Blog Guy. You will all be missed.
