It's All Over Now, Blue Collar Baby Blue

I first "met" Jerid Kurtz in the virtual sense when he was blogging as Blue Collar Baby at LiveFromDayton circa 2006. Then came word that he was working for Stephanie Studebaker and I was on that email list while the campaign lasted.

When Buckeye State founder Russell Hughlock left blogging to work for Richard Cordray, he tapped Jerid to run the show. Today Jerid announced that he too must move on to greener pastures.

It's no secret that Jerid and I have had our differences, on and off line. Now is not the time for that.1 Jerid has served well both as a friend to causes we share and a worthy adversary when we clashed. Agree or disagree, having Jerid at BSB made the blogosphere more complete and made me a better blogger. Hard to ask for much more than that.

Taking over for Jerid will be David Potts and Nick

1And with this post it can now be scientifically proven that Matt Naugle has absolutely no class.

I'd like to offer the progressive blogosphere a suggestion about Fat Matt. Let's ignore him. He offers nothing of value, has no redeeming qualities, and makes Anne Coulter look like Mother Teresa by comparison. You're absolutely right, Pho. Naugle has no class. But, the more we talk about him, the more emboldened he is and the more exposure he gets. Let's have a Matt Moratorium and limit his exposure to the people of Grandview who have ordered pizzas from his employer and meet him on their front porches!

I don't disagree, J. Generally my policy is to ignore Matt, even when he's in my face. This is in fact the first time I've linked to NogBlaug. But the piece was so speaks-for-itself outrageous it was worth breaking radio silence to once again remind people what a toxic personality he is.
