Yeah, no offense to plinth or Greg, but I don't think MeFi's bandwidth should be used for things like this in the future. Discuss in MetaTalk thread. Or don't. But I've stated my opinion, and I'll be happy to hear yours.

Fuck the etiquette. Here's an excuse to introduce people to the reason why this got posted. And a reminder that children and writing don't mix. Read them all, then see if it changes your opinion.

The father is Greg Knauss, the creator of the long-running newsletter/weblog An Entirely Other Day (currently offline) and Metababy, and frequent contributor to Suck and TeeVee.

You know, Mrs. Buchman, you need a license to buy a dog, to drive a car -- hell, you even need a license to catch a fish. But..."

> Read them all, then see if it changes your opinion.

Picked two at random, [(1), (2)]; discovered he's against ripping off Metallica mp3s and in favor of dumping IP for a secure protocol. Milquetoast that I am, I'll just say Suck is the right place for the dude. His prose style, while vivid, does not remind us of Nancy Mitford.

Greg Knauss is the bomb. Those that missed EOD missed something special. It was one of the best web diaries I've ever found.

Congrats Greg.

Why won't he let us have at his archives anymore?!

Where is that lovable man and his spatula!?

I'm going to write him a letter.

He also writes for TeeVee, Sendmail.net, McSweeney's, Simpleton, The Fray and created Metababy. Don't let any of this interfere with your thoughtful and nuanced view of his work, though.

rory: Ooohhhh! It hadn't occurred to me that those would still be there. Thanks.
