I hope this isn’t an omen

Poor little dead stoat. Not a mark on it (or the cat) so it wasn’t the cat. It was in a flower bed that my chickens peck around in so okay, I guess. But sad anyway.

Just got this in email:

Dear Weasel Times,

I hope this email finds you well. As the editor of Whatfinger News, I’m writing to inquire about potential advertising opportunities with your publication.

If you could share your advertising rates and the contact information of the person who handles advertising inquiries, we’d greatly appreciate it. Please feel free to reply to this email with your response.

Thank you for your consideration.

Best regards,

Sgt Patrick O’Reilly
Editor, Whatfinger Newsew [sic]

If the intent was to get me to look up Whatfinger News and then post about it, it succeeded. Odd site.

According to a post on Quora, “It’s a news aggregation site, similar to Drudge. However, it specializes in taking sources from the extreme left and extreme right on the same stories, giving the reader a chance to see how both extremes spin the news of the day.”

That’s an interesting idea. I’d like a site like that, but – unless I’m missing something – that ain’t Whatfinger. It looks like a straight up populist wingnut link site, but uglier.

I was going to say Free Republic with a fonts problem, but erm…check out what Free Republic looks like these days. Eesh.
