KANSAS CITY NEWSMAN LEGEND BLOGGER BILL TAMMEUS QUITS AND BLAMES TROLLS!!!

Actually, it looks like he'll staying busy with more rewarding stuff but his parting shot should hit home for our community . . .

"For quite a few years I have not allowed comments on this blog because when I did allow them readers turned the comments section into a theist-atheist pitched battle of nastiness. I decided I did not want to be responsible for creating one more platform for uncivil discourse in our culture."

Thanks, blog readers, but now I'm on to other things

As the archives of this blog will attest, I started it in December 2004 when I was still a full-time columnist at The Kansas City Star. I've loved the daily rhythm of doing it -- as, earlier, I loved the...

At least his attacks on the Catholics and Jews. As well as his ass kissing of Muslims. It his own family must have been sick of him excusing the swine who killed his nephew. So, dont let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, Billy.

Oh where have you been- Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
Oh where have you been Charming Billy?

Can you bake a cherry pie - harming Billy?

But with writing I can or can’t lie
I am not a young thing and can not see any butter

I dont see why Bill's blog was even important...with NO COMMENTS for TEN YEARS he was totally out of touch with whatever readership he had. He's toast. It's over, skippy.
