Reading the follow-up post to the parable about LaManzanilla , seems to have somewhere lost the message. It's like, Shooting the Messenger. What was brought to light , by an author's attempt , apparently using a pen name, to use a humurous, and satirical story to maybe open the eyes of what is really going on: apparently got lost in , who was the real person who wrote this , and the underlying reason for writing it.|
Was it for financial gain, or maybe to promote a new web-site ? Why wouldn't a person use their real name ?
I rather think , that a lot of people missed the point of the message. A lot of people might know exactly who and what this message was about. Then there may be others, guilty by association that would not want to look at this, as they may see themselves.
Jack Nicholson said it best, maybe, "you can't
handle the truth ".
A lot of chismee goes on in every small town, but this was not gossip , as this is out there for everyone to see and read, somewhat fictional somewhat reality. No real names were used only the story appeared to be true.
I have seen a lot of positive posts of people in the community thru interaction on this message board doing very positive community actions.
Talk is cheap , but is is where action begins. I'm hoping the community uses this soap opera post , as a beginning to positive actions.
