When the metal ones come for you

Confirmed: The Duluth News Tribune is staking its editorial future on angry, misguided rants written by conservative older folks. This one blames every conceivable problem in Duluth on socialism. I can’t wait until my 70th birthday when I can write my op/ed blaming the 2032 robot uprising on those damn kids trampling my yard as they flee the patrols.

    Are you saying you’re 47? If so, wow, I would have guessed at least 15 years younger than that based on your picture.

  2. No, I said that the robot uprising would occur in 2032. My 70th birthday will occur in 2049, after 17 years of robot rule. But typing all that strains the premise, doesn’t it. 🙂

  3. I hate it when the robot patrol chases kids across my yard. And I’m right next to the middle school.

    My poor, poor grass.

    I blame the Democrats!

    lol – you nailed it ! Same can be said for MDN comments, at least the majority of them. Come to think of it, the Houston Chronicle comments are even worse… heavy sigh… it’s hard to be a progressive thinking independent in the realm of the Bush & Perry dynasty… we are few & far between down here.

  5. I for one welcome out Robot overlords.

    As someone fast approaching 70, I can say from an age perspective that this DNT letter to the editor was truly limited. From a conservative-liberal perspective (I weigh in on liberal), it verges on “sour grapes.” The 27 comments on the DNT site proves that this type of writing just stirs up the pot without anything positive resulting. From my personal perspective…the letter was just plan dumb.
