"Sick of noise and short of breath" -- that's how Howard Devoto described himself when he left the Buzzcocks and formed Magazine. 'Sick of crap and short of patience' -- that's essentially how Ruth described herself over the weekend when she password-protected her blog after stirring up a storm by dissing Cathy's views on rape and who is 'asking for it,' and losing patience with neanderthals visiting her site to sling shit.
Oddly, the password-protection is being taken as confirmation that she's been slam-dunked. Isn't it great just how rational disagreements on the blogosphere are.
PS: Wonder what they all think about George Carlin's routine 'Rape Can Be Funny'? You can hear a snippet at Amazon.
