No one gives a flying fugue at a donut about OSM (or the Pilot's Had a Heart Attack Airlines).

Or whatever name they manage to pull out of hat? Really ....

Here's what happened, a certain person, wasn't nice to another. And rather than be a man, a mensch, or a regular joe, and apologize. They betrayed a friend. But .... here's the thing, they also betrayed an ideal.

It was that betrayal, that got eyes looking, ears preening, and tongues wagging. That those who p'ssed down their own pant leg, couldn't see, wouldn't see, or didn't want to see. It certainly made for a very interesting beginning for a new company.

This new company has trumpeted the words/concept: 'word of mouth'. Well, unless people are deaf. I think they have heard enough. Self interest vs. betrayal? Well, I think the net is going to decide on it's own. And no one cares. Why? Because it isn't funny anymore.

Have you seen the latest DtP?

Man it is painful.

Dennis baited the trap carefully though. He appealed to Roger's need to save face. And Roger fell for it.

What a tragedy all around.

BTW Perry Mason was not Simon's lawyer. He was DtP's. (which you will understand if you read the last three or four days in the series).

Not yet this morning, just getting started on my first cup of joe. It's unfortunate the hits DtP, SDB, and now many others have taken. Merely for being persons with integrity. And shuddder, some devilish monsters have even been lambasted for expressing their opinion.

The people formerly known as the people known as, have started down a road they can never come back from.

Roger just turned out to be a flashy Hollywood dude afterall.

We all make choices. Some consciously. Some unconsciously. Some good. Some bad.

We don't know what Roger was thinking. We're not him. Of course we can certainly guess. We can however, see what he has done.

I know that many did not like what they saw. But also, many didn't want to see it. Many simply ignored it. A few even denied it. And a few more could not believe it.

What's done is done. It would appear Dennis has found his peace. Bless him.
