Old Post Rescue #1

I have written 6, 182 posts over the years. Some of them are quite good but they were not very famous at the time I wrote them and have been relegated to oblivion since then. This is why I decided to institute a new series titled “Old Post Rescue” where these good old posts will be brought back to light. I’m sounding very lofty this morning and I have no idea why. But you get my meaning.

Here are some random posts I think deserve being revived:

1. “How Horrible, Mean Americans Destroyed the Soviet Poultry” – my response to a very offensive article about the Soviet Union’s collapse.

2. Not to be outmatched by an American colleague, a journalist in Toronto wrote this really “Stupid Article on Ukraine in Toronto Sun.”

3. Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84 wasn’t nearly as popular as it deserved to be, and neither was my review of it.

4. Twitter is the best place for people to engage in extremely bad writing. In this post I made fun of horrible tweets. And here I made even more fun.

5. And, finally, “Clarissa Speak“, one of my favorite posts where I listed the peculiarities of my blogging style.

    1. These definitely ring true: “clarissa is a very outstanding person”, “clarissa is approximately 637” and “clarissa is not ready to go steady with clifford.” I mean, I don’t even know who this clifford fella is. 🙂


  1. Great idea! I look forward to reading your golden oldies, especially “Claressa Speak.” And thanks for reblogging “Walk” — a bunch of your readers have visited my blog as a result.
