If you wanna scam me, can't you at least speak my language?

Posted By on Tue, May 1, 2012 at 7:54 PM

Still stalking the streets of the community which would cure anyone's desire to live in Small Town America, 1950s edition, but now Tracy and I once again are traveling the Magic Highways of the Internet. As such, I am always happy to make new friends who contact me via email.

A wonderful email came yesterday from some folks masquerading as the Cox tech support team, featuring some spectacularly misspelled words. Yet again, these rascals have asked for my password. I actually wrote them a reply, suggesting that they master the English language.

Yes, some whoppers get by me - especially in yesterday's caffeine driven blog - but I'm not trying to empty your wallet or invade your computer.

Yes, I often listen to the TV without watching it, thank you very much

Yeah, I should have written NPR instead of PBS in my blog yesterday.

Sue me. Or better yet, make a pelage in my name.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
  • The inadequate legacy of Brown

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
