    Does this mean my arguments will have to take place on the other site?

    Now Scot will write for the Rope,
    Mr Lee says maybe i hope,
    To write for that site,
    That is total shite,
    Or maybe i can’t come up with a rhyme for dope off the top of my head.

    What has happened to THE CITIZEN I loved so much?
    Has everyone died? I come here looking for the latest by Hags and all the others kids – nothing. Absolutely nothing.

    Mikey boy, I know it’s difficult to come up with rhyming words in one’s head. Tell you what to do. Just Google “Rhymes with ______”.
    I’m looking forward to some great poems and limericks from you.

    Mikey would like to be a poet,
    But he can’t come up with the words.
    With a few little tricks,
    And a few little clicks.
    He’ll be a poet before you know it.

    (not at all my best)

    My facetious friend; I sent in ‘Hand Cream’ and that attempt at humour obviously lightened no ones mood.
    The only hope for revival at the Citizen, is if there’s a snap election…..then the lurking liberals will exit their insular caves and prattle on about the value of leftist thinking and such….hey, I just made a joke…’leftist thinking’…that’s a good one!
    In all seriousness…Jimm lightened the mood around here and it’s a shame he no longer contributes.

    Hags, I read your “Hand Cream” and “Wanted: work for a white male coot
    ” columns and enjoyed them immensely. Unfortunately, I was in a hurry to get to the boat and never had time to comment on the “Hand Cream” ditty. But I did respond to the latter of the two and even posted an appropriate photo of Jack Lemmon and Walter Mathau.

    To one commenter I suggested that you were so old that you even call Methuselah “sonny”.

    Now is that not bloody nice of me?

    Sad to see the changes and sad at the loss of great contributors such as Jimm.

    I am very disappointed in the local arts and culture community for it’s lack of expression in this and other forums.

    Perhaps it is their ignorance of the need to engage those within Cambridge who do not recognize the value of a thriving A&C community segment. If they do not want their theater turning into an extension of another college than they better start making some “noise”.

    Or, perhaps, it is elitist arrogance. With the millions and millions of dollars being spent in Cambridge on a theater, I guess I would have expected a little more enthusiasm to be displayed by A&C supporters. Where is Walter Gowing?

    I do note that Drayton’s musical “9 to 5” is SOLD OUT in St. Jacobs, which I take as a potentially good sign for here. But there seems to be little or no momentum building. No one seems to be representing this social area or beating the drums to generate interest. Should there be?

    I’m not exactly sure what “Changes” you speak of Scot, but I commend you for seeking to do what you do best and have a heart for.

    As an idea, maybe the short stories could be arranged in a “Cottage Edition” that could be offered every spring. Perhaps Cottage Life magazine would be supportive of such a partnership. As we get ready for summer, I can see my self lounging around on my boat reading it.

    Anyway, all the best.

    Well Maggie B., I don’t see it that way. The product is still intact. I believe it needs the right people, in the right positions, to move it.

    “There is no issue, or haircut, that 2 weeks and a bottle of Scotch won’t fix.”

  10. Hags April 4, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    Newsie…you have a boat? Wow, how elitist is that for a lively member of the numb proletariat?
    And Margaret, I was sad to see nary a comment from a respected source concerning the Graham James and Linda Gibbons cases. Your comments are both welcome and encouraged by an ‘old coot’…and by old coot, I meant Mudgie.

  11. newsfan April 4, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    Yes, the boat happened to come about after years of sacrifice, working our tails off and doing without. If that makes us elitist, then you must be just lazy.

    I didn’t see Linda Gibbons come on the radar here. Her imprisonment is a terrible miscarriage of justice.

  12. Hags April 4, 2012 at 3:52 pm

    Uh, I invented lazy. BTW, the Gibbons bit was within ‘Graham James.’

  13. Mrs. R.D.M April 4, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    Wait a minute- what happened to Jimm? And Scot, you could use a little more tact. I found your posting quite arrogant and rude.

  14. newsfan April 5, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    So it is Hags. I didn’t read the entire article. However, I do stand by my point made earlier in respect to Ms. Gibbons and the Arts and Culture crowd.

    Thanks for inventing lazy Hags. I’ve used it many times myself.

    Have a blessed Easter for He is Risen.

  15. Hags April 6, 2012 at 9:36 am

    Thanks for the blessing Newsie, back at cha. My fave service at church is Easter Sunday…always bursting with emmotion, power and sheer joy; I can hardly wait.

    I am curious as to what you are changing the focus of the stories to. Are you changing the focus to more local stories?
