    would making a “our own real-life Carrie Bradshaw” comment be taken as a slam or a compliment – i’d mean it in a good way. even better than that fictional character, really, because you save the condescending, foolish crap from the TV for . . . wait, you don’t do that.

    Even better! Congrats!

    Please don’t do a Laurel Wellman on us, Violet Blue, please! If you’ll remember, Ms. Wellman was a Canadian writer who had the wonderfully snarky column “Dog Bites” in the “SF Weekly.” And then the hideous “San Francisco Chronicle” hired her away to write her not-so-gentle ironic humor, and boom, 9/11 happened and “irony” was supposedly out in the mainstream media, and her column was a disaster. She never could find the right tone, partly because she couldn’t dissect Ken Garcia with her unsharpened scalpel anymore. I think she ended back in Canada where she originated.

    So good luck, Miss Violet, because in spite of your fabulous presence, the SFGate blogs are still going to suck. And if you’re any good, you’re probably going to get fired.

    With affection.
