“I think I’ve been blocked from the mayor’s Facebook account. Can you imagine him taking that away from me?”
– Josh Resnek speaking with the mayor’s Blue Suit Tuesday
By JOSH RESNEK with THE BLUE SUIT
“Did he really do that to you, Josh. You know it takes a lot of guts to block someone from coming on to your Facebook site,” the Blue said. He couldn’t stop laughing at his own joke.
“Yeah. It’s a bit like landing at Normandy Beach on D-Day. Takes real guts,” I added.
“Why would the mayor do something like that?” I asked the Blue Suit.
“Maybe he doesn’t like you looking at his Facebook site. Did you ever think about that, Josh” the Blue Suit suggested. “He didn’t do it,” I said. “I suspect he doesn’t know how to block anyone from a Facebook site. You want to know, I don’t know how to do it either. Don’t forget, I’ve got about 3,000 friends on my Leader Herald Facebook site. We’ve never blocked anyone. Friends and foes alike are welcome on the Leader Herald Facebook site. You have something to say, you can write it on the Leader Herald site. You like Carlo, you can have your say. You don’t like Carlo, you can have your say. You support Carlo, go ahead, write your heart out. And on and on.”
“If Carlo didn’t block me, then who did?” I asked the Blue Suit.
“Probably his chief of staff or his media person did it. They are pretty good at strategizing that way.”
“I understand,” I answered. “But how do you think I feel not being able to access the mayor’s Facebook site? What a thing to do to a person. It just isn’t fair and it isn’t right. I used to go to his site every day to find all those valuable golden nuggets of information about all the good Carlo is doing for the people of the city.”
The Blue Suit yawned. He squashed nearly an entire piece of pizza in his mouth with a push of his fingers. What followed next is almost indescribable – the Blue Suit chewing that slice of pizza and devouring it the way a garbage disposal reduces whole food to bits and pieces before sloshing down the drain into oblivion.Continue reading — Eye on Everett —
