The Return of Laura Billings?

Hi All!

Warning: a bit of mean-spirited and opinionated writing to follow. Sorry, sometimes a guy just has to vent.

A bit of local inside baseball here, so don't worry if you haven't a clue what I am writing about today.

In reading a column in Section B of the Incredible Shrinking Star Tribune, I was struck by it's resemblance to the screeds of Laura Billings, the best fire the Pioneer Press ever made. Well, they bribed her to quit anyway, and the readers rejoiced.

It's some self righteous blather about troglodyte Republicans plotting to get sex education out of the schools.

The subject, the hysteria, the condescending wise ass tone, the mediocre writing and the utter boringness of the piece had Billings all over it.

The only thing Un-Billings about it was the byline, husband NickBoy.

It seems that Chief Nicky let his Squaw mail one in for him. What a lazy ass.
