Last Spring I imposed a restriction on the mentioning of certain parties in an effort to let things shake out in the real world and do nothing online that would undermine that process. To the best of my knowledge, things have shaken out, and I no longer live under any restrictions whatsoever about the people I discreetly mention on this blog. Maybe I should hold my tongue a little while longer.
Well, I say to that this one point or two: I've stepped up in regards to who I really am over, and over, and over again in the current configuration of the game laid before me, and it's now on the parties I feel I can safely label as the antagonists to step up and prove they are anything other than that which I have just now called them. In other words, it's not on me to prove they are not the bad guys in this little game of their choosing, this game that they play by their own set of rules, this game where they get to decide what constitutes a win for them, it's on them to prove they are not the bad guys. I can hear the chirping of the crickets now.
