Together We Stand - Divided We Fall?

This Awkward Squad may have spread itself too thinly. We started as a joint publication enterprise and it seemed clear it was easier to keep in touch with each other and our silent readers that way. Does anyone fancy starting again? First up we need a name - my initial suggestion is Renaissance to reflect our desire to be universal men/women with a refusal to turn a blind eye to any topic no matter how obscure and also indicating a glimmer of hope that perhaps society could be experience a rebirth carved out by the new voices in the internet age. Any thoughts? Who wants to help out? Any other names?

Nice to see you back, Tobe!
I wasn't aware that the Awkward Squad was dis-banded....quiet, yes, but isn't that the way of all blogs from time to time ?

Do you prefer it this way? I'm up for whatever people think is a good idea.

Tobe!
You made some good points over on the Arena, and I have no doubt that should you want to become an Editor , you will.
If I may say something ?
Be careful what you put in print.
As a journalist you know how the press dig.
Guido being a good example right now.

What about the zebra - you promised.!!

I don't reckon I've ever done or said things quite as stupid as Guido has or ever will. Yet thanks for the advice. The zebra is up and being examined now.

Awks seem to find their ways together through practice.
Did Richard Rorty say that somewhere?

Be careful Toby! Is calling someone "stupid" libellous? Or hate-speech [their feelings may be hurt.....]?

lavenderblue said...

I don't mind.
I'm used to it.

For that Guido stupid is a compliment so keep on Toby.
