Wonders never cease. In today’s newspaper, The Union writes “Visit NCRoadkill for more observations by George Boardman.”

But when you go to the blog, the last post is from May 2014 announcing “the end” for the blog.

“The three new posts today are the last articles I’m writing for this blog,” Boardman wrote.

“The blog drew good readership on Fridays and weekends, then faded as the new week progressed. Clearly people wanted to see more material than once a week.

“Finally, it comes down to time. I’ve reached the point in life where I have the freedom to not do things, so I’m not doing the blog anymore.”

On Rebane’s Ruminations over the weekend Boardman made an out-of-left field comment that “I’m resurrecting my blog, Nevada County Roadkill, starting Monday, at ncroadkill.com.”

But we’re well into “Monday” and the latest post is nearly two years old. You can’t make this stuff up!

    George has now updated his blog, but it looks like he was in a rush. I noticed semicolons posted next to capital letters and lots of “white space” between posts, indicating some coding issues. A little wobbly, to be sure. LOL.

    How interesting that Boardman tries to conflate a drunken Sheriff with Jamie Dimon. One person ripped off the entire economy of our country, the other is just another sheriff whose actions make him just another drunk on the road. He says that “The bank has paid out over $18 billion in 14 separate actions since 2010 for its behavior during the housing collapse and subsequent recession. Dimon’s punishment? He received a 35 percent pay raise to $27 million a year in January. Of course, it was his first pay raise in two years.” Ain’t it funny how he calls the only person in Congress to point this out is the “most liberal”- Elizabeth Warren. While the other side sits on their hands, and wouldn’t say crap if they had a mouthful.
    George also (conveniently) fails to mention that the $18 Billion was bailout money, FROM US.
    Selective memory lose?
    Nope, just another right wing ding running his mouth, with the little facts conveniently left out, to stir up his uninformed base.

    George has turned to the comment sections of his blog to defend his obtuse and illogical prose. What he left out is that he also screwed up his facts — again. He writes that “DeVry University is a publicly traded company that specializes in signing up students to loans they may or may not be able to pay back.” In fact, DeVry Education Group is the publicly traded company (ticker is DV). DeVry University is only a DIVISION of DeVry Education Group, which has a lot of other assets. http://www.google.com/finance?cid=655840 What a fool! George thinks that a university is the same as a publicly traded company. And he used to be a “business writer.” TalkingtoaWall.com.
