    sloppily written and researched market-screameresque piece.

    Yet his got ten gazillion times the recs.

    Go figure....

      I have no pressure to get attention or make a name for myself :)

      Over the long term, I think that's the more effective method for most of us to be exchanging ideas with each other.

      I do find it interesting the sheer quantity of diaries that have filled the rec list over the past week or so that were about people (Gibbs, Sirota, etc) instead of issues.

      •  It is a bit frustrating, tbh. (1+ / 0-)

        As it often prevents us from truly understanding issues.

        Your diary examined the aspect of this case that Sirota should have examined if he had done good research and had done his job as a "professional" journalist.

        In fact, I suggested to David that this is what he should have examined, but I doubt he read my comment.
