Straw poll: loss of virginity announcement

    Just voted on loss of sex in th’ straw, not to be mistaken with a roll in the hay! –

    LOVED IT… begging the question what do you mean by IT in the voting options?

    On a more serious note, I feel compelled to comment on the vote – or the options. YES, Loved it… but is its placement with all the serious commentary appropriate?

    Maybe it needs to be set-off from the pages of text as cartoons in the New Yorker are separated from the prose text. Might be a publishing dilemma. Further begs the question of subsequent contributions… Will they be as artfully acute? Or, just tasteless.

    As a FORMER perFORMER in improvisational theater… I thought it was quite provocative and it’s associated comment on the Obits in the BIG.ORG — well that was quite good!

    Victor, thanks for your supportive comments.

    I’m a big believer in mixing the fluff/soft news right in with the issues/serious stuff, especially for a blog this size.

    And it seems to me that that’s similar to the way the New Yorker uses their cartoons, rather than having a cartoon section.

    As for subsequent loss-of-virginity announcements, I’m not inclined but I could be seduced into it.

    Time to close the poll, now that the negatives have clearly out-paced the positives. Ouch!
