Blues for Texas

"Opposition Leader," the anonymous "Texas Blues Man" is blogging no more, at least for now, perhaps longer.
I have no reason to believe that his departure from the blogging scene is for any reason other than he hasn't got the time for it.

There will no doubt be speculation that TBM is under some sort of situational pressure relating to his chosen profession and his opinions, but we'd have to know what his chosen profession WAS, to know the answer to that one. For now I'll take him at his word that he simply doesn't have the time.

If other "Anti-FLDS" blogs start going down like flies I'll begin to wonder. The following is found at the blog "FLDS Texas" and I received an email also from "Blues."
"I am taking Coram Non Judice down for an indefinite period of time. I have to take care of some real life issues that preclude me from paying enough attention to the blog. Although the blog states 'invited' members only, that is the generic Blogger page, and no one has access to it. If circumstances change, I’ll bring it back up later."

Old Caput Penitus Culus will be sorely missed -- like an abscessed tooth.

Heah, Vulture you abscessed tooth might be because you only feed on dead carrion. Oh, TBM is back up in the blogosphere and you have another place to look for any road kill.

Jam,

I continue to think it's significant that the vast majority of "pro FLDS" or "FLDS leaning" bloggers are public about who they are.

The vast majority (if not all) of the ANTI FLDS or FLDS hating bloggers are anonymous.

There is plenty of reason to suspect that a few of those "ANTI FLDS" bloggers are actually the same person posing as several.

Reminds me of one of my favorite Caput Penitus Culus moments - when old Culus tried to intimidate me by "outing" my real name and city of residence. Uh...doesn't work when both items are plainly displayed on my blog!

When confronted with this information and asked why he hid behind anonymity, he replied to the effect that the FLDS would persecute him if he were public.

You can't make stuff like that up.
