Why anyone would pay money to listen to the providers of half-assed rumors and commentary on news that is largely repetitive and otherwise banal? This event is all about self-agrandizing, it’s an information ponzy-palooza. Spend your money on going to hear local music instead.

If your vitriol is directed toward HuffPo in general I pretty much agree. If you’re talking about the NOLA Bloggers, I suspect you have a personal issue with one or more of us. You sure as hell don’t read us. And I’m still trying to figure out what a ponzy-palooza is.Thanks for commenting.
