A reader passed along to PP at South Dakota War College and me the homage paid us by Bonnie Russell, “publicist” for South Dakota’s Judicial Accountability Initiative Law (J.A.I.L.). PP has posted his reaction to the honor. I’m just jealous that he got the nod as the blogger “most critical” of J.A.I.L.
Bonnie seems to believe our criticisms don’t deal with the issues. Her timing is impeccable. I already have ready to go the first several of what will be a continuing series of posts looking at the amendment itself and the extent to which J.A.I.L.ers misrepresent, misconstrue and, yes, lie, in an effort to sell the public their asinine bill of goods.
Since weekends are slower “hit” days for the blog and Monday is usually a good one, tune in then for the first installment. A reader advisory, though. Please be aware that I am going to use what J.A.I.L.ers fear the most — the facts. If the truth likewise scares you, you may want to avoid posts in that series.
P.S. to PP: You better watch out. I’m gunning for your award.
Criticism is above all a gift, an intuition, a matter of tact and flair; it cannot be taught or demonstrated,–it is an art.
