OPOL (not quite an Essay)

I just responded in a a thread to one of your detractors.

  I find nothing “RADICAL” about OPOL  (1.00 / 1)

He is just a run of the mill 60’s nostalgist spouting cliche talking points and  dated iconography.

Maybe he would have been radical 40 years ago.

********************************************************

I call Bullshit. (4.00 / 1)

I may have butted heads with him about one thing, but the man believes what he says, and actual IDEALS don’t change with time.

If more people had not sold out & laughed at it as you have done, the world would be a better place.

OPOL cares about the world.  Do You?

Yeah you pissed me off, and I did not realize that it was your one year anniversary when you posted the same day as when the shit went down. (I am being vague so as not to drag up old shit too much, you know what I mean.)

But if you remember past that I was one of your most outspoken supporters, prior to that day.

Much to my surprise I still am.

You get so very much right.

So if the reason you are not at MLW is my fault, consider this a genuine apology.

Its not my Place, it is Maryscotts, but if you left on my account, then I guess its ok for me to say:

Please come back.

I am still in the process of living, and I can get things so very wrong, even with the best of intent.

Besides, we Hippies need to stick together.

Even if you won’t come back, I have thought long and hard, and think you deserve this Public Formal apology anyway.  I know this is your new home, but I miss your cross postings, really I do.

I was a bitch.

I AM sorry.

    but the apology is appreciated.  Consider it history…my bad for holding a grudge.

  1. I am proud of you, Diane.

    It was just this kind of gesture (remember?) that made me think you were excellent to begin with.

    People gave you crap then, but I thought you were brave.

    And, also, I’m happy that OPOL has accepted and responded.

    Peace to you both, please.
