A few weeks ago I went ahead and deleted a post that over the years had received both scathing and encouraging comments. It was a piece about my disdain for a particular adventurer with his own show on television. I’ll not mention his name. Disdain may be a harsh choice of words and it’s not even that I dislike him as a person (I don’t even know him), but rather disagreed with his treatment of native and indigenous people and their traditions. Anyway, I wrote this piece in a huff and was pretty mean (in a humorous way) and angered some of his fans. The fact that my silly blog post was still at the top of a Google search for this character tells me that he’s not in the media much these days. But I was read the riot act by folks nonetheless.
I don’t usually bow to pressure but I felt that my little bit of writing was causing these people mental angst and that’s something I didn’t intend on doing. So I took the piece down. I don’t want this to be a place that contributes to anyone’s angst. My views on this gentleman haven’t changed but being that I haven’t seen or thought about him in more years than I can count, I didn’t feel that my blog post needed to be up reminding anyone else about him. Search his name and go to his own website. No need to detour to mine.
