Unless Kari's Lying...

Another interesting weekend in the blogosphere. After still having my posts show up on Leftyblogs (following my March 25th post about not wanting to be associated with them), I finally contacted Kari Chisolm personally on Saturday, telling him to cut me loose. As you'll see below, this post should not show up on Leftyblogs unless Kari's lying. I also heard from Hart Williams, author of the hate speech directed at people with developmental disabilities. I'll blog about that later. wrote:

OK, I've removed your feed. It should disappear during the next
update - over the next few hours.
