Over the past 10 years, I have heard it all it seems. I love WoodyBoater, I read it every morning with my coffee. An asset to the community and then it’s always followed by this. And every now and then he goes nuts. Like yesterday’s “Interior gate!” drama.
Why am I not going along with the glossing over of it all. Why do I call out the ACBS? Why allow comments from readers that have an apposing view? Why can’t Woody Boater just be everything to everybody?
Well. We are. From time to time, it’s a nice reminder that everybody is not like everybody. Each of us see’s the world through a different lens. And in our culture there needs to be a place where people can express those views. Even if those views are not kind to ourselves. In a sense, we encourage these opposing views because it makes us all a stronger culture, passion, and yes, Community.
Why the ACBS? I ask, who else represents us all? When we take on the ACBS, it’s because we care, and want the best for all, not one place. I will add that the emails and phone calls after my last rant was over the top. And not what you may think. It wasn’t kind, and there is a serious split in the passion. And if there isn’t a place out there that allows that spirit to be represented then we will continue to live in a strange bubble. So, I suppose I am nuts. But no matter how you feel about it all. Ya gotta admit, it takes nuts to hang it out there.
