Thought you all might want to know what is going on with Mr. Brandt here in Colorado. I was able to sit in on the sentencing and it was very interesting to say the least.

Definitely has gotten crazier and crazier. Sad.

I never met Eric personally, but he was a prominent MCdotComer for time. He was Right, but I’d have not imagined this.

Anyone remember Kyle who hung out here around the same time?

I was down at St. Anne's Hospital in Burien last Wednesday getting my Covid vaccine. The Internet indicates I was within 1.4 miles of Kyle's house at the time. I'll be back there in a couple of weeks. Maybe I'll stop by and leave a note on his door letting him know his mc.com friends miss him.

Hal, I don't think "prominent' is the best adjective to describe Eric Brandt's posts here. I would choose 'infamous'.

That said, I feel sorry for him for his current degree of mental illness.

Heck Gunnar, back then most everyone who posted here was infamous. Bunch of infamous Righties and Lefties if you ask me.

Hal, that always baffled me. I always saw it as moderates/right/far right, with a few token lefties. But I have always been singled out by the right wing contingent here as a progressive liberal, even though I support mining and oil & gas development.

We used to have great discussions here, looking back a decade ago. Now crickets. I blame Social Media, Trump, the internet, whatever. I don't do Facebook as I regard it as the devil, and wince when my aged mother texts me about something she read on Facebook (believe me, her mental faculties were way better 20 years ago).

The whole current discourse in this country just makes me sad.

We did have some great conversation – and arguments & pissing matches. And that was because we talked and listened to one another. Because we had low tolerance for thoughtless sound bites. And there wasn’t much room for fools. But, that was then, this is now.
