I love sarcasm. I eat it for lunch. I have sarcasm on my breath most of the day. Sarcasm is a way of life for me. Sarcasm is humor with an edge. And I’m not being sarcastic.

Having said that, I really find it hard to believe my comments last Friday concerning Pamela Furr’s show on WMAY were based on me not catching on that Pam was being sarcastic. She responds in the comments section of that post and also has a running conversation with Jerome Prophet on the same topic over at his place.

If you were being sarcastic, Pam, I apologize. But here are a couple of suggestions: don’t run with scissors and please do not employ sarcasm on an unsuspecting public again. And yes, I’m being sarcastic.

Update: I'm told that Pam just rebutted my post on the air and is now taking on JP’s comments. I missed it but it probably doesn’t matter since she may (or may not!) have been sarcastic. It’s so hard to tell.

Update II: Whether or not Pam is sarcasmicly-challenged does not address or negate my larger point: talk radio, up and down the dial, is a great disseminator of bad information. And yes, so are some blogs except blogs have much less influence than talk radio.

Here's a thought... stop listening to talk radio if it's so misinformed. Or better yet, call the shows and take to task those who are delivering bad information. (*Please note - not being sarcastic here*)

Call talk shows AND blog? Maybe in my carefree, bar-hopping single days but I have a real job, a real family and a real lawn, fer crissakes.

And even if I were single, unemployed (or still worked in radio), and homeless I wouldn’t have the time to correct all the nonsense going out over the airwaves. Get grip woman!

Remind me what I've been misinformed about. Please correct me. I yearn for knowledge. If you can't accept the fact that I was sarcastic in my comments on Friday, then that's your deal. I apologized that I did not communicate that part very well. There's really nothing more I can do.
