Bizarro World

Sure, this thing we call the world-wide web has it’s psychos and freaks. But you’ve gotta love the new record for mental illness being exhibited on the new North Greenbush Pipeline blogspot recently pimped by the Troy Polloi.

The author writes about himself in the third person, discussing his thoughts and actions, portraying his doings somewhat more positively than any of us NGB residents would. Really strange, weird stuff. The bizarre stuff? How about a posting, discussing how Town Clerk Connolly and former Councilman O’Neill turned their back on our “hero”? How about a post in which there is speculation that our “hero” is about to land a big state job. How about the two pictures of our “hero”, suitable, by the way, for dartboards and bonfires.

Missing from the site is any description of what our “hero” did in his town job, in which he was paid $21,000 for a part-time position that included no office hours, no apparent work schedule and no apparent work product. Unless you count sustained craziness as work product. Also missing is any explanation why our “hero” sued Classie Lassies, and brought several lawsuits against the town and county which you, Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer, paid for. We’ve had enough of this nonsense in NGB and wish this guy wasn’t wasting anymore bandwith.

Unsettling, for sure, but unsettling is nothing new to the decent folks of our town. The post we would most like to see is that our “hero” has taken a vow of silence and hiking to a remote wilderness location, never to be seen or heard from again.

The author’s identity? We don’t want to spoil all the fun, but his initials are CB. Kind of like B.S.

We’d give you the address, but we were told by our mother that when you seek crazy people talking to themselves, you should just politely turn your head and ignore them. And that’s what we should all do.
