A question for my loyal readers: Do you mind if I post half-ass crap? It’s not totally assed, mind you. Just half-assed. It’s not bad, but it’s not so great either. I’m sitting on a couple of posts right now, but don’t feel hugely great about them. Frankly, after a few home-run shots I hit this weekend, I feel kind of burned out and just don’t think I’m adding much to the discussion. And while they’re mostly finished, they’re not completely finished, and I’m not sure if I want to bother finishing them.
One is a longish slam on Jonah Goldberg, and the other is a briefish slam on Gregg Easterbrook (though these things have a life of their own, and it could become long by the time I’m done). And while I think that both are ok, I really just don’t feel great about either. I mean, we’re talking Goldberg and Easterbrook. It’s so easy slamming those guys that I kind of feel like I’m just faking it. Hell, I think it’d be a greater challenge to argue that these guys were somehow right about something. But the only people who would want to read that would be Goldberg and Easterbrook.
So I guess the question is: Is it better to post half-ass stuff, or to not post at all? I’m almost inclined to not post at all, rather than to put out an inferior product; but I just thought I’d ask.
