    Default Blog Addressing Covid-19

    Hi. My name's Bob Dietz. I've been a professional sports handicapper for the last 40 years. I'm going to link to my blog from here. The blog has followed the Covid-19 crisis since it's inception and has been ahead of the curve. I pivoted from sports gambling to the pandemic back in March. My late wife was a demographer and anthropologist. Her work analyzing Native American remains upon contact gave me a preview of the possible effects of pandemics.

    What I will try to do is give a thumbnail summary of the blog entries each week, so people can track them down if they have any interest.

    The latest is part of my "Politically Incorrect" series as it broaches subjects too indelicate for primetime discussion. There are currently about a hundred entries regarding the pandemic.

    Default The general problem with REDietz's writing

    He thinks it's Gonzo, but he lacks what it takes to make it so.

    Put another way, "Most writers don't have the honesty, the charm or the mental edge that you need to write decent gonzo," writes Shane Hegarty. "What you've got now is Jeremy Clarkson writing about himself, saying 'look what I'm doing, aren't I great?'. Hunter was never like that. It was about the great American dream and road trips and seeing what happens. You've got to be a genuine character for that to work. In the wrong hands, gonzo can be a disaster."

    And that is what most of REDietz's writing turns out to be - a disaster.

    He would do better to resign himself to being an MDawg Sycophant.

    Still, compared to MisterV (aka MrV)'s fustian, REDietz's writing is Hemingway-esque.

    I scrolled through some of the titles. Most have nothing to do with the Pandemic?
