Prediction: Jason Walker . . .

.  .  .  will never win an E-Brake of the Week.

I think we should all email the Hardline and demand that they interview Jason Walker to get his story, just like they did with Doyle King.

But I do wonder what happened to Ms. Smith.  Someone out there knows, someone who reads this blog.  Some anonymous source.  I fear it isn't a happy parting, which would be too bad.  She was good for a laugh now and then, if not for a coherent account of trouble on our roadways.  And she was a pretty good sport about the pranks. 

Perhaps she has joined the Obama administration.

Contrary to what you think, I departed on very good terms. They are all still my friends. Thanks for your concern.

I am very pleased to hear that. I wasn't concerned that the "terms" weren't good -- nothing in the shows hinted at that -- I was concerned that you (Ms. Smith?) were perhaps unwell, and that was why nothing had been said about it. Very best of luck in the future, whoever you might be. (Rather hear you than Jason any day.)

Plainsman,

I wouldn't necessarily take it as fact as an official Barb Smith response (though I can see that you allowed that it may be someone else). Obviously anyone could have posted that response. What we REALLY need is for someone on The Ticket to actually tell what happened, in regards to Ms. Smith.

I do think something happened between the 2 parties in which they (The Ticket) don't want the information to get out. Otherwise, they would've have already expained why she is no longer there. So there must be some reason why The Ticket is being so secretive about it.

Could this possibly be another (vaguely) Greggo type incident in the making??

In regards to Jason Walker, I remembered him being interviewed a week or two ago by the Musers in about his life history.

Maybe that is why the Hardline has not done an interview with him about his life ... because he has already told his story on the air once already.

JS, I wasn't sure about that "Anonymous" post, either. But it was so short and sweet that I kind of felt it had the ring of truth. But I have to admit, I did think it was kind of unlikely that Barb Smith would be checking out My Ticket Confession. So you're right -- I kind of had to straddle the fence.

Thanks for the note about the Musers. I'm sure I miss a lot during the day. Too bad I can't get someone to just pay me to listen to The Ticket.

Thanks for checking in.

It was I who left the comment. a greggo type deal? LOL. 6 years of a split shift driving from collin county, a toddler, one in college and one in high school was well....you try it. it is quite normal when people leave that nothing is said. it's business and economics, plain & simple nothing more. (someone emailed me this blog page...it took me awhile trying to figure out how to post.lol.)

just fyi, why do bloggers blog without revealing identity? sounds like a bully pulpit to me.

JB said...

A bully pulpit? HUH? A bully pulpit means one is speaking from a position of implied authority.

This is my first visit to this blog and I appreciate the authenticity of the author. If I am getting the vibe right, he would be the first to laugh at the thought of it being a platform with much weight. We're having fun, no?

And that comment coming from an anonymous poster? Very pot - kettlish..

Anonymous Barb, thanks for the clarification. I'm sure all P1s wish you well and also wish they could give up their own commute. Your maternal status was well known and I'm sure I was not alone in wondering how you managed to take care of a family and still do early-morning and late-afternoon reports. Although with that Collin-to-downtown drive, I'm sure you became an expert. Best of luck and keep in touch.

The Plainsman said...

JB, I had exactly the same thought -- I blog anonymously for the same reason Anonymous Barb blogged anonymously -- to add a spot of fun and mystery. I wouldn't be shattered if my identity were known, and I suspect an adroit webmaster at The Ticket could find out my name, not that it would mean anything to anyone. I'm not an industry insider. No big deal, I may unmask myself some day. Thanks for checking in.

dude fyi, i was a hillary fan, not obama!! get it right!! :-)
you must not have listened to the bone during the primary.
signed anonymous barb
sorta sad, that anonymous ari hates me. i'm fun. and slowly becoming a conservative--well not really but sort of.

The Plainsman said...

A-Barb! Of course we recall your championship of Hillary, but since she isn't in a position to hand out too many jobs, I thought your advocacy might have come to the attention of the present administration. The fact is that I never thought I'd long for a Hillary administration, but right now it sounds pretty good to me.

My whole idea with the blog was to be respectful and balanced with our comments (polite, mention the good along with the things we'd like to change), and so far my commenters have been pretty civilized compared with what I see on other blogs. You ARE fun and I'm sure the P1 Nation misses the high-wire act that your interactions with the yuk-monkeys always presented.

Please check in any time.
