I called my blog, “Culinary no-no.”
After that post, I thought it might be fun, especially on the weekend, to briefly get away from the more controversial, heavy topics and write about something I think most people love and appreciate: eating.
So, I thought, I’ll carry on with this through the summer and then pull the plug.
I can just imagine what some were thinking. What in the world is that fool doing?
This is Kevin Fischer.
Star of TV.
Star of radio.
Star of the blogs.
Lefty bloggers hate me and my conservative messages.
Jealous bloggers get all steamed when I get press time and time again.
They can’t stand that I get tremendous response whenever I fill in on WISN.
They hate the fact my blog is so popular. Why don’t more people pick on him, they moan and cry.
They smear, and launch one witch-hunt after another.
Like the Tasmanian Devil, they screw themselves into the ground desperately searching for something, anything that would prevent them from having their secret decoder ring taken away.
Maybe he jaywalked.
Maybe he was late for church.
Maybe he wore white after Labor Day.
First they hollered and screamed that I did too much on state time.
Finding nothing, now they say that even though I’ve worked for the state a gazillion years, that I do too much on my own time.
C’mon guys, you’re making fools of yourselves. (My favorite is that they can’t even figure out when I’m really on WISN, even when I tell them on my very own blog. I promote that I’m filling in for Jay Weber and they write that I was filling in for Mark Belling. Sherlock Holmes, they ain’t).
One of these genius bloggers actually wrote months ago, with no facts or substantiation but only HER vindictive hate that WISN was dumping me.
Gee, so much for HER credibility.
But back to yours truly.
This Mark Belling fill-in, this right-wing nasty no-good scoundrel is blogging about…………….. FOOD???
And people still read his stuff?
They still like him?
They listen to him on the radio and watch him on TV?
He's piling up hit after hit after hit?
And he writes about......................................................................................................FOOD????
As I explained in Culinary no-no #43 several weeks ago:
NOTE: For the benefit of new readers, Culinary no-no began on my blog last summer when I wrote about my wife’s preference for ketchup on a brat. I consider such a selection to be taboo. I started discussing improper (in my view) food issues, a departure from most foodie articles that focus on what’s good to eat and drink. I thought I’d write until the summer grilling season was over, but over 40 consecutive weekly blogs later, I’m still writing about culinary no-no’s. A complete surprise to me, the feature has become one of the most popular items I write about.
It’s true. I have received phenomenal response from the culinary no-no’s. That’s understandable. I treat my blog like I treat my talk show appearances. I write about what interests me, and it’s not always down and dirty politics.I'm happy readers have responded so positively.
Sunday, I will post my 50th culinary no-no. Some have been fun. Some have been quite serious, deadly serious.
I thank you for your interest in what I thought would be two, three, four blogs at the most.
