Left Livingston

It's my duty to announce that I've left The Livingston Enterprise. I won't go into the details, but let's just say there was a management style issue, excessive work expectations, and no raise in salary forthcoming. I couldn't support two houses on the money they paid, so a Solomonesque decision had to be made. I'm grateful for the opportunity. I made some great friends and powerful allies, made real change in the town and county in the way of bridges and roads being repaired as a result of my stories, have great clips to my credits file now, that are linked to the right on this blog, so I'm satisfied. I'll be back summers to fish.

Sorry it didn't work out. You'll find something good to replace that job.

As I've mentioned over at Coopers, I feel sad for folks like Marty Monroe who appreaciated your writing so much that he'd discuss it with his wife and then post your latest Livingston piece over at Coopers blog. During your latest gig there were many folks who did exactly what Marty did, over and over again. You've obviously developed a strong and loyal following. I feel for Marty and others

It's strange when the conservtive is the polite reasoned one around the net lately. Thanks Woody.

Look there is no Marty Monroe. Balter is doing this. It's a play on Marty Malone, the new Park County Commissioner, taken directly from my reporting. Balter told me so last night and I deleted his ad hominem attack.

He's become out of control since Hillary was named SOS. He should get help for his petty jealousy; and some Slim Fast. It's pathetic.

There's no Marty Monroe? You're kidding me, I would have never imagined this to be the case. Well, then, forget Marty, what about a gentleman named Weldon Fuller, who wrote the following on Coopers blog

"My wife brought this article home from the hair dresser asking isn’t that the Mark York always getting bashed on Cooper’s blog. Sheepishly, I had to admit it was."

I'm guessing that since your departure you've been getting plenty of support from loyal readers like Weldon or is he too a figment of your, I mean Balters, imagination

Look ahmed, I appreciate your reporting, but insinuating I'm writing these is the wrong path. I'm not doing this. I have no need of yours or Cooper's or Balter's approval for anything I do.

The question you should ask yourself is this: why are so many people obsessed with me and my activities? I do lead a fairly exciting life, but the downside is it's filled with too many common pissants who live online and have no outside lives at all.

Get one, and accept the fact that Hillary rules as SOS!
