Last Night's Post (and a couple of random thoughts)

Okay. I promise. I am not going to obsess over Kathleen O'Brien Wilhelm, a.k.a. "The Deer Lady of Avon Lake, Ohio."

But, The Blog has stumbled upon one more thing that begs to be shared.

After that. No more.

For the time being.

(Now that The PC is an official subscriber to the Avon- Avon Lake Patch, he cannot promise that he will never speak of her again.

That will be up to her.)

Proving the old adage that "All publicity is good publicity," The Avon Lake Patch posted a story a few days ago, that The Blog just came across today.

The headline...

Blogger Kathleen O'Brien Wilhelm an Internet Celeb After Her Patch Blog Goes Viral

Read the whole story here.

No real surprise here.

I am guessing that the Avon Lake Patch has gotten more internet traffic in the last two weeks than it has gotten over it's lifetime to date.

So, why not crow about it?

The story is careful to point out that Ms. Wilhelm is a blogger and not a reporter. Therefore, not an employee of whose opinions are not necessarily those of the publishers.

So that's okay.

Hands are thoroughly washed.

But, the best part of the story is the fact that Patch gave Ms. Wilhelm the opportunity to address the nationwide response to her blog post.

Last night, The Blog wondered about Ms. W's capacity for embarrassment.

He doubted that she had any.

And, as it turns out...

The Blog was correct.

If you have already read the story that I linked to, above...

Then you have already seen her response.

If you didn't, I will do you the favor of quoting her, here.

"My blogs have included topics regarding government out of control at the expense of Americans, illegal aliens, jobless, and entitlements with titles like ‘Democrats are goosestepping to Obama,’" Wilhelm said. “None have received as many hits or gone viral as this blog. Anyone who reads it should see that the focus is concern that humans are becoming second rate to animals.
“Yes, I know the signs are for humans, but provide false hope to where the animals elect to go and another example of government wasting taxpayer's money on these signs. Perhaps, others should consider a blog; as in America, the greatest country in the world, we still have freedom thanks to our soldiers. "

(Itallics are mine.)

In two paragraphs of what amounts to right-wing Tourette's Syndrome, Ms. Wilhelm, demonstrated that her befuddled, semi-literate bat-shittery is genuine and sincere.

Thus, confirming her status as The Stupidest Woman in America, who has never held a Congressional office.

                                                               If you are picking up what I am putting down.
 Rest assured.

If, in the future, The Blog has anything more to say about Ms. Wilhelm's posts...

He will be laughing at her. Not with her.


Unlike most of my fellow denizens of the blogosphere, The PC has not posted the obligatory commentary about last Sunday's Oscars.

That is because, even though The Blog is a huge fan of movies, the truth is, this past year, The Blog saw only one of the nominated films.

"Lincoln," was that film.

The others are all on The PC's "must see" list.

He just didn't get around to seeing them.

And now, already, most of them have, or will soon, be coming out on DVD.

So, The Blog has only one comment about this year's Oscars.

A sobering thought.

"The Hunger Games 2" can now boast that it stars "Academy Award Winning Best Actress" Jennifer Lawrence.



The prognosis of The Blog's beloved Mac.

The old warhorse will live.

The Genius at The Apple Store™ narrowed the problem down to either the video card or the power supply.

He is leaning toward the power supply.

That's the good news.

The bad news...

The Apple Store™ is not equipped to fix an 11-year-old Mac.

The good news...

An authorized, third party repair shop should be able to get the old Mac up and running without breaking The PC's budget.

Just thought you might like to know.

  1. There was a time when I deeply mourned leaving Avon Lake. Now, between cancers like that blogger and the amount of ACTUAL cancer that city produces, I'm glad I got out when I did.

    Oh, and I'm glad you don't have to shell out for a new computer.
