This is not a real blog post. This is just some bullshit.

I am torn.
I believe in sincere, honest, and passionate debate. I believe in discussion. I believe that no one has a right to believe a belief that hasn’t been tested repeatedly through orderly argument, and I believe that a good pow wow can be a lot of fun.

I would have been ecstatic to hear:

“Yes, people have the right to write whatever they want on their blogs, but I wish more people wanted to write about the pressing social and political issues.”

Or: 

 “The hope of ths country is in the hands of the educated, privileged elite. It is their duty to take an active interest in politics.

 are

Or even:

“You missed the subtle joke Muhumuza was pulling on you: He wanted to illustrate that traditional journalism is superior to blogging and he did this by writing a newspaper article in the style of a blog. I think he made his point.”

You know. Something that addresses the issue.

Instead I get this.

“The best think CB did was to ignore you baz. I think the way you juxtaposed his picture was bad. You also lack journalism ethics. I am not suprised if some one tell me you never passed through MUK because if you had atleast student introduction to photojournalism. I am sure Opolot would have told you that playing with some one’s picture is more warse than  writing a wrong article coz a picture   tell 1000 times more than a story.
By the way, were you writing in monitor requesting  requesting the editor to sack him??????
You need to style up too……..”

 

What should I say to this fellow? Clearly this argument is over.  The matter is dead and everyone has moved on, except those who have nothing to contribute at all at all at all. Let me go and work on some fictional Big Brother. Ntsssss!

  1. Shenzi, can’t people just give it a break?

    Mbu the best “think”, “more warse” That wholoe bit is flawed. Baz, who is that and did he actually go thru school?? Where was this written…links please.

  2. I SO know what you mean about that deflated feeling one gets when momentum is brought to a screeching halt by a ‘HUH?’ remark! As your Biggest Fan No. 5,031,477,826, I ‘Ntsss’ along with you. I read that post …and even though i don’t know what ‘intarekcho’ means (and i get the feeling the ‘meaning’ will be lost in translation) i could sense you were passionate about the topic!

  3. Tee hee hee!

    Akumaze mu obuwongo.

    Reminds me about a time I confronted a taxi driver with long litany of complaints and well argued points about his bad driving. After huffing and puffing, he said, “kale me I not know English.”

  4. Eh, reminds me of how I felt after I had had a long argument with a friend concerning CB’s article. This friend sent me an SMS: “You see Sam. The differense between you and us is that we are journalists and you are not. You don’t see things the way we do. No wonder are planning to start our own BHH…”

    Note the spelling of ‘difference.’

  5. Banange! Y’all are still on about that? Move on. Attend an English class while you’re at it. I mean, you could even get that MUK professor of simanyi pictures, to edit some of your work. And get a life! Go out. Tonight is Rock Night. Go and make friends and drink beer or gin and tonic. Whatever. Just move on.

    Not you Baz sweety. I think that guy is just jealous of you. Because me I am. And you’re my hero.
