Yes, it's another end of another era for Kiln Ovendoor the Minnesota anti-PRT propagandist:
The Dump Mark Olson Blog Going Back Into Mothballs
...I'm not going to be wasting time following the pathetic antics of Rep. Mark Olson or his pals the Personal Rapid Transit pod people anymore.
I know, he's declared victory so many times that his latest announcement of retirement from blogging is more underwhelming than usual.
The last time was when A Transportation Enthusiast and I called Kenwood on his kid-glove treatment of conservative Democrat Elwyn Tinklenberg. This followed on the heels of his embarrassment over the Ray Cox Affair, as well as Poolgate and a smear on Cornell University.
Kennel Ration needed to lay low for a while, so he claimed a New Year resolution (more then 2 weeks after Jan. 1) to spend less time on the internet, and made himself scarce.
It lasted until June.
As for the newest 'retirement,' I had several premises to choose from for this post. There was:
blogger retirement sinks on repeated erroneous prediction
of foes' demise"
Topical -- but too wordy. I could also have gone with:
orders flags to be flown at 99.999-hundredths staff"
Propagandist's where-are-they-now retrospective"
But I think one image is all we need:
Will he be back? Of course he will! He's gonna be bogged down in his ill-conceived War on Gadgetbahn for a hundred years!
You won't have Ken Avidor to kick around anymore
