A Humble Suggestion

Allah makes a sensible recommendation in light of Reagan's death:
Allah should also say that the blogosphere is never, ever more grating than when it's in obit mode. And it's only going to get worse as the week wears on. Purple prose is one thing but c'mon, people: Do you really need to be the twelfth guy on your block to post the "tear down this wall" quote? Just say no to redundancy. The Gipper would have wanted it that way.

Even more so however, I hope people will restrain themselves from venturing into any fever swamps like DU or Daily Kos to shine a bright light of outrage on those losers and their inevitable "Screw 'em" dance of gleeful ugliness. I've already seen some posts to that effect.

Please, let's not go there. It's so very unnecessary.

Yes, these people are despicable human beings, I get it. Let's let them be despicable by themselves in their pathetic little padded rooms.
