Bloggist Grovels, Admits Error

In his Grand Ignition Announcement (one blaze if by e-mail, two if by blog) the Slangwhanger-in-Chief inadvertently misdescribed reality. (See the incomparable Tom Toles below for the best single cartoon he's done this year. Happens to be on that very subject of who is the misleader, and who the misled.)

The error so badly infests the following statement from his announcement as to render it nugatory, inoperative, and wholly vitiated:

The Primal Screed site allows you to sign up to be notified by email any time a new post is initiated.

Alas, the Slangwhanger-in-Chief, in a fit of absence of mind, had confused the features and capabilities of his blog software with that of Scoop, employed by one DailyKos of frequent honorable mention. Scoop does indeed let you sign up for notification of new posts. Google's Blogger, employed by the Slangwhanger-in-Chief owing to its astonishing free cheapness, does not.

The Slangwhanger-in-Chief humbly states that sackcloth and ashes are being worn and bitter herbs consumed from the uncomfortable position of standing with his loins girt and his staff in his hand. He will to continue to report to his readers any time he finds errors of fact have inveigled themselves herein. Meantime, anyone who wants an email notice every time a new post goes up on the Primal Screed may have it by simply writing to the Slangwhanger-in-Chief using the email contact link in his full profile. (Click the View My Complete Profile link located, curiously enough, right below his profile in the right column.)
