    Oh, just shut up. I'm commenting on local stuff WAY less than I used to. If I pop up occasionally, live with it. My occasional presence can't be any more annoying than your constant negativity.

    Okay, good. Glad I asked the question. And I wasn't trying to put down Jamie or Scott or others at the paper. I've just been impressed by Josh Flory, and hoped he was ok.
