Like when when someone silently farts in a crowded elevator, the thing one usually does is ignore it; the smell will eventually dissipate then everyone will forget about it.
But what happens when someone on the elevator has a bullhorn and yells "Mr. So-and-So FARTED!"
Furthermore, what happens when the person with the bullhorn writes about the gaseous event, posts it online and frames it as a "DEBATE" between the one who farted and the ones forced to smell it? Framing the act as a 'debate' gives a weight to the gaseous offender that he doesn't deserve and an equality between him and those forced to inhale.
And you can be sure that the person with the bullhorn makes sure NO ONE forgets.
Anybody get my analogy?
Substitute 'Ricky Mason' for 'Mr. So-and-So', his letter for gas and the person with the bullhorn... that's The Hoboken Reporter.
A friend told me the HR was actually promoting Mason's fan mail to GA in a separate piece... an effort to drive traffic, I suppose. In my view, that's like the guy with the bullhorn trying to get more people to step into the stinking elevator.
"Hey everybody! Wanna immerse yourself in something foul? Come on in!"
Encouraging discourse on such rancid offal from the pen of Mr. Mason is just that. Wanna immerse yourself in something foul? The Hoboken Reporter invites you into the elevator.
Well, GA left an invitation on the HR for folks who like fresh air better.
Along with a challenge to the HR to get off their lazy asses and ask Ricky Mason if either he or his wife have paid Matt "Materina" Calicchio for 'services rendered'- like the dance Calicchio performed for GA last week.
Does The Hoboken Reporter want to clear the air or keep promoting that Mason stink?
