Is the Huffington Post starting to ‘get it’?

18 Aug

First we have Arthur Allen as a regular blogger and now Ralph James Savarese. Maybe we might one day have (gasp!) an autistic blogger writing about autism. Until we do, this is a step in the right direction.

    Wow! So I wonder if Arianna gave Kirby the boot? I wonder if she’s willing to discuss Kirbygate? No I expect she’s still trying to cover that up.

    Maybe a shifting of something is going on–Dan Olmsted now being at the Rescue Post…..

    DeeDee is pushing the autism as toxicity buttons on Huffpoof as of two days ago. Maybe she’s Kirby’s replacement?

    Good for them. Except for Stagliano and Kirby, I kind of like the HuffPo.

    So far Olmsted doesn’t rate a sweet little picture on rexu post, but he’s writing with a byline as if he’s still at UPI. Dan Olmsted — Washington, D.C. or something.

    So maybe the other editors at rexu post will start adding bylines.

    Here’s his bio thing at the end of his post:

    “Dan Olmsted wrote The Age of Autism column for United Press International and is now an independent journalist based in Washington, focusing on autism and related issues. He can be reached at”

    I don’t know why, but that strikes me as sad. I picture him living with a friend in DC, unemployed and writing from a computer at a public library or something.

    Ms. Clark,

    The “Washington DC” byline is very impressive (not). Note that the good Geiers use Washington DC rather than Rockville MD or wherever they really are.

    I have a feeling that Dan Olmsted’s cubicle never was very impressive.

    Geiers live in Silver Springs, MD. Dan Olmsted and Mark Geier deserve each other, maybe Dan could rent out a corner of the Geier basement for an office now.

    …but where would David sleep?

  9. Tennis fan August 25, 2007 at 08:53 #

    Are we sure that David doesn’t still sleep in his parents’ bed? All cozy with his teddy and all?

    …good point.

    Wouldn’t that worry you if he did? :S

    “Wouldn’t that worry you if he did?”

    Heck, no! But it sure would explain a lot.

    White hats vs black hats applies to think tanks as much as to politicians.

    Too often, the buffer zone is as much, if not more a war zone, than the actual war over this issue.

    That America has become increasingly inept in determining the white hat/black hat players for governmental control the world over is a signal that America is moving in the wrong direction.

    Black hat tactics disguised as white hat means and objectives appear to be epidemic, and few decisions based upon this method wind up gray. When white hat methods are used to achieve black hat goals, America is surely off track, and that method is becoming the most effective tool in black hat methodology.
