From commenter Howie Doit in the comments at Word Up:
If some think George has a problem?
also known as drug abuse
refers to a maladaptive patterned use of a substance
Substance abuse often includes
problems with impulse control
Guilt ridden conscience = erratic behavior?
“Adultery (also called philandery or cheating…)
is sexual infidelity
to one’s spouse
Adultery is often seen as a breach
of trust and of the commitment
that had been made during
the act of marriage.”
If one sees oneself in trouble
one had not foreseen
but that others do not see yet, does
fear of prison vision the need for misdirection?
“If I were a magician, I’d hand out broken compasses. It’s all about misdirection. ”
― Jarod Kintz
George handing out broken compasses?
“skimming is a slang term
that refers to taking cash “off the top”
… and officially reporting a lower total.”
I wanted to save a copy of this because it may violate the terms of Ed Cone‘s blog of existing commenters using other anonymous names. I also wanted to publish this because even if none of it true, it makes the point that many of George Hartzman‘s suppositions over the years have been exactly that.
His credibility at this point as a Short Bus Blogger is shot, despite the occasional mention by the equally fatuous N&R. Indeed, his unfocused blogarrhea is so bad he has been de-listed from Greensboro101, our local aggregator. Worse still are his frequent unhinged rants before city council.
Finally, someone has given George a dose of his own medicine. It’ll be interesting to see how he likes it, for a change. Of course, this recent round of unsubstantiated allegations is a personal vendetta against Roch Smith, Jr., proprietor of Greensboro101.
I am no stranger to the unsubstantiated allegation, but I try to imbue them with a grain of truth, irony and humor. Hartzman’s pratfalls are also humorous and entertaining, but as I’ve said before, there’s a big difference between people laughing with you and people laughing at you.
The role of jester in a community is an ancient and noble calling which can do much good. However, spraying the city with wild suppositions devoid of focus or wit for personal attention serves no greater purpose and does much harm. Perhaps with comments such as the one above, George will finally comes to understand how they feel.
I’ve spent a considerable amount of time getting to know George and understand where he’s coming from. Sadly, I’ve had no success in getting him to change his tactics, to become a better blogger and public speaker. Indeed, Roch has also made many entreaties toward those same goals, to no avail. Unfortunately, George continues to believe he knows best and I have no hope anything will make him change that selfish and disastrous opinion.
