Grow up, bloggerettes!

One of my very favorite writers ever, Helen, has been unjustly pilloried by Michelle Malkin. Michelle called her a moonbat for writing this post.

Now, I may not agree with everything that Helen says(mostly her feelings about Lebanon and Blair), but I do agree with her so far as her sadness that travel has become so difficult because of evil. As a frequent traveler, I am not thrilled that the next time I go to the UK, I can't carry on my laptop, my books, my water or my mp3 player. Like Helen, I am concerned about my belongings making it to the other end without being stolen.

But Helen has every damn right to write what she feels. And she is reasonable and sane in her post.

Michelle Malkin, on the other hand, is very unreasonable these days. She has jumped the shark, as far as I am concerned.

When Malkin first started blogging, she was reasoned and smart. But the more attention she gets in the blogosphere, the more shrill and abrasive she becomes. And what is very upsetting, as one of my dear Cotillion friends said, is that Michelle has been the victim of the very same kind of nastiness that she has foisted upon dear Helen. And yeah, I have always thought of Helen as Dear Helen.


Michelle Malkin owes Helen an apology. A big one. And until Helen gets an acceptable apology from Michelle, Michelle is off of my blogroll.

One more thing - Zoloft can be your friend. It's mine and keeps me from flying off the handle - maybe it could help others in the blogosphere!

For a much better post on the same subject, go see dear Cassandra.
