My never-ending 15 minutes of fame.

Staff Projects, Satan or Silence 9 Comments

I’ve been screwing around with MAOS for about a decade. The first couple of years, I was trying to figure out my “voice” … long time readers will remember my ode to the camel-toe, my fetish with ladies shoes, and the occasional fart joke.

It wasn’t until, oh say, 2008 and the arrests of Shitbird Gonot and Fucktard Capellini that this blog started to attract attention outside of Deerfield Beach.

And along with that attention came the detractors, the ankle-biters who would say “guy’s just enjoying his 15 minutes of fame.”

Really?

Nearly 10,000 posts and 3,000,000 words later, and I’m still basking in the limelight.

Countless articles written about me, radio and TV interviews … in Time magazine, the New Yorker, NY Times, Wash Po … a flurry of articles in the HuffPo.  Talked about on air by Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Rachel Maddow, and a raft of others.

No seriously … that’s some 15 minutes of fame.

On the flip side, I’ve attracted some negative nancies…  Local Jamaican Alien Predator From Out Space Looking Fellow Terry Scott threatened to cut my head off and serve it on a platter.  4 outta 5 local politicians despise me. My dog was poisoned, bullet holes in my car, BSO parked out from of my house for two weeks, lawsuits, threats of lawsuits, actual lawsuits, bitching legal letters, Bob Norman‘s Belly, and a constant barrage of whining comments.

Yin meets my wang.

In the end, I have an amazing, and unparalleled, track record …

Boca officials should end religious invocations

Three cheers for Chaz Stevens, whose creative street theater antics have moved several local communities to drop religious invocations at their official government meetings. Three cheers also for Freedom From Religion Foundation attorney Andrew Seidel for reminding us that government involvement with religion actually destroys religious freedom.

As a resident of Boca Raton, I am especially concerned with Deputy Mayor Robert Weinroth’s justification for the invocations he gives at the opening of the City Council meetings. He seems to believe that appeals to a supernatural being set the proper tone for deliberations, and that they somehow point to a higher purpose. I, along with many other atheists and agnostics in Boca Raton, believe that the higher purpose of the City Council is the people’s business, and that the power that guides its work is the voters who elected its members.

I hope that the members of the Boca Raton City Council will follow the lead of our neighbors in Delray Beach and Deerfield Beach and end religious invocations at their official government meetings.
