Put somebody's eye out? At best, I might hope for a couple cases of fust-related moderate to severe asthma attacks.

Desert Area Man is a character complex, of uncharacteristically characteristic character, which is his most characteristically complex characteristic, complexly.

That "nom de where" will undoubtedly serve you splendidly as you embark upon your noble quest to circumambuleight the globe in ninety-six hours shy of a half-dozen fortnights.

Desert Area Man runs towards everything now, because in retrospect, riding a horse with no name that was impossible to call for when it inevitably went maverick was maybe not the best idea to ever shake out of someone's bootcut 501s.

Hey gang! I was reminiscing earlier tonight at that one mommyblog about desert area man Ken Layne, and Zippy told me to swing by here and wave my fusty p-ness around, for old times' sake. Also, too, I upfisted everyone while I was at it – I'm ambisextrous – and it felt like the first time.

It felt like the very first time.

I still find it hard to reconcile Ken's speaking voice and amiable one-on-one demeanor with his saguaro-like behind-the-mic persona, which I guess is actually closer to how one might expect him to sound based upon much of his pre-Desert Oracle writings.

What makes it even weirder is that when he goes out for drinks, he wears a suit and tie, but when he goes out on stage, he wears a black ten-gallon hat and old timey train engineer overalls.

Each ridiculous thing that Rebecca cravenly accused me of in the "FishbowlDC" thread was a lie or willful misrepresentation designed to malign my hard-earned reputation as a well-liked and respected long-time commenter, and to undermine the veracity and obfuscate the intent of my carefully chosen words of concern. She knows this, and the vast majority of those whom I had the profound privilege of calling comrade for so many years surely must know this as well.

I was — I am — one of the good guys, you guys.

And yet...I've been lied about, silenced, and vilified by fools; worse, you've been lied to, duped, and played for fools. I have zero fucking tolerance for such bullshit, especially when it concerns me and my friends. The unprecedented nature of my unjust banning should serve as a chilling and worrisome warning to every Wonkette commenter that criticism and dissent —no matter how well-intentioned, reasoned, and respectful — will not be tolerated, especially if it makes Rebecca or her bullying benefactor look bad.

You'll sit down, but will you shut up?!
