Why I Hate Blogging

Have you ever had a nagging splinter? In your brain? That's what blogging is, atleast for me. The more I think about it the more unattractive "blogging" becomes to me. It's an excruitiatingly painful endeavor to even think about. Amidst the psuedonym veiled so called experts and political activists the culture of masturbatory self promotion and pretentious commentary on social issues you will find little Ericka; sick of being part of this culture yet irreconcialiablly attached by a single thread. I cant remove this splinter.

Am I a pundit? No. Do I want to be a pundit? I guess I do, in a way. So I have to remain a part of this culture and hopefully, I'll find some kind of motivation to change it, or to feel better about it. Until then, I'll remain in this funk, regretting ever having started blogging. I just don't want to end up being another Ann Althouse.

So for now, I will change my blogging style to a much more personal, trivial manner and infused within my rantings on the daily life of Ericka Gilbeau you might notice my political and philosophical leanings.

Wanted: A Definition

The outcome of the conference remains skeptical, but the following has been concluded:
Finding a consensus about the formal definition of terrorism remained a problem: One person's terrorist is another's freedom fighter.

What's your say?

Update: This is reminiscent of the "Iraq has WMD's, no doubt."

"[Iran] certainly does sponsor terrorism. There's no doubt about that at all," Blair told a parliamentary committee.

When exactly was the last time an Iranian was involved in the so-called terrorism theatre?

Britain Apologizes for False IRA Bomb Convictions.
"I am very sorry that they were subject to such an ordeal and such an injustice," Prime Minister Tony Blair said in a brief television statement.

But it's all right, Tony, happens all the time, right?
