Is stuck... is stuck... is stuck...

Originally published at "PRT Is A Joke" IS A JOKE v.1
Words written with wildcards (***, !!!, etc.) was the way we originally wrote
Ken Avidor, Ken, and Avidor.

The Seattle P-I has given *** ****** another opportunity to make a fool of himself: they decided to publish El Rueda del Chirrido's usual Talking Points.

What more can you say? It's the usual LTO3s: misrepresentations, distortions and ad hominem attacks. He even calls journalists "gullible." Niiiiiice. The only new wrinkle was his strange claim that the contractor Short Elliott Hendrickson is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Well, Olsen is a very Minnesota surname.

But the byproduct of this battle was that the feedback forum accompanying his propaganda became a flame war almost from the get-go. This was unfortunate, because most people wanting to educate themselves about PRT would surely have been put off.

There was one amusing sidenote. A poster named "serialcatowner" tscott@s...net couldn't distinguish between PRT and a cable gondola.
