Frankie,

I think I know you well enough by now to know that you wouldn't make light of a situation regarding child molestation.

And I know you'd never do that.

The lizard people thing is a reference to a guy named David Icke (Google him) a former sports reporter who currently conducts 'lecture' tours, and has some pretty weird theories.

One of which suggested something along the lines of a cabal of 'lizard people' who are really aliens, who run the earth from some subterranean cave. In South America or somewhere.

Personally, I think he's crackers, but having said that, he has his adherents.

Not for me to criticise - I can only give a personal opinion.

He is a bit mental though. (In my opinion.)

Regards

Skoob.

Can't see why you're pissed off mate. Seems to me that we're all singing from the same hymnn sheet.

And Frankie - just for information - you got it wrong sbout the British press. Every newspaper is a private enterprise. They tend to have political affiliations in much the same way that Fox News and others do The BBC is state funded, but in its basic code of practice has always been for free editorial control. It is far from being a propoganda machine. (Despite complaints from the right that it leans too far to the left, and vice versa when it suits people with vested political interests.)

Although some people would - as is their right - dispute that.

The Savile case will be thoroughly investigated.

Albeit decades too late.

Anyone who covered anything up should be made to pay. And I'm reasonably certain that we all hope they are.

By the same token - what's been going on for decades in the Catholic Church needs to be exposed, and justice needs to be served.

As a Catholic myself, I don't hesitate to demand this. What I will say, is that as this was going on among Catholics...it's never happened among any other religious group?

These freaks know no boundaries - whether it's an internationally renowned media outlet, or one of the world's leading religions.

This problem needs resolving across the board. And I'm sure we all hope it is.

I could probably have argued my point a little better, but it's late, I'm tired, and I've had a very unpleasant last few days.

Just don't interpret this as a taking a pop at anyone here - because I'm not - I just want to see justice, for all victims.

Sincerely

Skoob.

Can I make a constructive comment on this and others in the cycle? No? I will anyway.

It's a bit of a rip off posting these items on an almost daily basis, with very little writer input, or criticism. These things are just quotes, followed by a couple of words of comment.

Bear with me here...

People use the Magazine section of the site to try out experimental and creative writing. That isn't the sort of thing you can knock out on a daily basis with twelve words of comment on eighty nine words of quotation.

And it swamps the Magazine section.

Okay - this is where the constructive part comes in.

Why not collate the quotes over a longer period - a week, or a month - and then make some genuinely scathing remarks, Fanzine style?

I'm not trying to be negative - quite the contrary - it's just that these pieces seem to be rushed when they don't need to be. In this case, it saves clogging up the Mag section if there's more time devoted to them, and it makes for something people may want to read, as opposed to two or three words strung on the end of a quote from a newspaper.

Last suggestion - be biased. That's what makes fanzines function.

It would be infinitely more interesting.

Regards

Skoob.

Point taken.

Funny how nobody seems to comment much lately. Can only speak for myself, but I either can't comment, or the things being posted recently, I just don't have an opinion on.

Can't somebody write a story about lesbian tennis players?

Dear Spoof

If anyone's deluded enough to think that continually recycling the same old toot ad nauseum is somehow going to rejuvenate the site, then perhaps they ought to sign up with the BBC.

I liked this too Debbie.

It makes me feel like writing subs again.

There's a gap in the market for transvestite humour on the interweb these days. Erm...not that's it's about transvestism...but...erm...hang on...nearly choked on me feather boa there...

I get the idea that most entries on this thread will be swearwords.

So, keeping in the spirit of things, my word is:

Appreciated muchly.

It's always a dilemma whether to put stuff like this up.

Given that the ould perv had his elaborate headstone removed and smashed up provides some vindication.

Thanks.

Clivey,

Sorry to disappoint you mate, but that isn't really lowering the bar. Where I come from, we call it straight talking, or shooting from the hip.

That kid who committed suicide was around the same age as my eldest granddaughter. The little girl who disappeared in Wales, April - same age as another precious grandchild.

It's bad enough that people even have the capacity to do such things.

Let alone, conspire to pretend that it never happened.

Sorry, but like I said already - I can't abide such things, and if I had my way...well...let's not go there ..

Mind you, as in the Maddy McCann case - I expect that some people out there think there's a funny angle.

They're sick.

Regards

Skoob.
