Degrees Of Separation (?)

Just for my own amusement, I took the time to backtrack this one.

I posted a notice of Paul Broun’s upcoming town hall meeting in Athens at 9:25 a.m. on Tuesday (see a couple of posts below).

Matt over at Beyond the Trestle picked up on that and posted something of his own at 2:49 p.m. (with joking attribution en español as to its source - as Rush would say, “with just a little Spanish lingo thrown in" - at least he noted the source, most people who appropriate my notices, information, research, and arguments, do not).*

Someone ensconced at One Press Place clicked through the BTT post to my original TOA post at 4:33 p.m. (as evidenced by the fact that the “referring URL” from the Morris Communications server in Augusta was the post on BTT).

This post then appeared on Blake’s Online Athens blog at 5:04 p.m.

That was followed by this editorial printed in Wednesday’s edition (the online version usually appears after midnight of the same morning the printed version of the newspaper comes out).

And around we go.

*Those with good memories may recall that my 2006 campaign web site included an extensive page in Spanish covering my biography, political philosophy, and platform planks. Other local campaign web sites, before or since, have not (and almost all of those being for progressive Democrats). Of course, this is yet another example of how intolerant and exclusive we Republicans supposedly are, with the reality being somewhat different.
