First off, I have nothing against anybody over there at the Cincinnati Beacon. It’s a blog I don’t read all that often. You know, so many blogs, so little time—that type of thing.
This week, a friend told me that Justin Jeffre took me to task on a column that I wrote for CityBeat back in April called “My Cincinnati State of Mind.” Jeffre wrote the post at the Cincinnati Beacon on April 28. Sorry I’m a little late in responding to it.
Click here to read the column, then click here to read what Jeffre had to say about it.
To be honest, I didn’t read all of Jeffre’s post and didn’t read all the comments either. Apparently, there was some confusion as to the photo that was used. I can say for sure that, yeah, that’s me in the picture.
Why I’m responding to Jeffre’s words I’m not sure. No, that’s a lie. Simply put, I need to come up with a post here today. So. . .
Here’s my “Justin Jeffre State of Mind” and really my state of mind on people who don’t like what I have to say about Cincinnati. It’s all good, it’s all fine, say whatever you want.
When I first started column writing eight years ago, I used to “get off” on stirring the pot and actually enjoyed the comments both good and bad. Now, if I pay any attention at all, I’ll read the good comments and blow off the bad ones. My thinking is life is too short to get my blood pressure up.
Shortly, I’ll be living over in Covington. “Good riddance,” says Jeffre. Just a reminder, sir that I’ll only be across the river. I’ll still my eyes open and I’ll still have opinions about Cincinnati. I guess you will too. Again, it’s all good, it’s all fine.
