One Nemesis

This year I am taking no interest in politics, but during the last election cycle I acquired one internet nemesis, someone paid to write for a political blog. Although the rivalry was intense, we never crossed the line into incivility.  Eventually the campaign grew so ugly I just deleted everything and moved on.

Today, curiosity got the better of me and I checked in at the old poison-pen forum.  My old nemesis had attempted suicide, failed, and was now under medical care  —  blind,  but resigned to being alive. It was the sound of the other shoe dropping.

  1. “we never crossed the line into incivility. Eventually the campaign grew so ugly” those two phrases sound a bit anomalous when put together…

  2. Two things you don’t want to know about: 1) how sausage is made 2) the comments at the end of political articles during election season.
