This is one of those moments where you pinch yourself to see if you are awake. I did, and I am.
I saw this headline in the OrangeJuiceBlog feed and I couldn’t resist taking a look.
Welcome to the worldâ€™s first blog coup.Â Â
To our readers:
I hereby resign as webmistress and editor of Orange Juice Blog. In fact, Iâ€™m taking Thomas Gordon and Carl Overmyer with me over to The Centrist OC and resetting the layout of this site. I am inviting all of the OJ bloggers as well as our readers to join us in contributing to our new site. Please note: as each blogger owns the intellectual property of their work they are free to do with it as they please. As the site designer, I personally own the rights to that. Accordingly, the actions taken here today are not actionable legally or in any other way.
Weâ€™re tired of Artâ€™s constant censorship, arbitrary rule, lack of leadership, flip-flopping, and personal insults behind the backs of those he calls friends. Also, people are not happy about Sean Mill coming back (I only wanted him here for professional reasons) or Artâ€™s off-the-wall stories (i.e. â€˜Bustamante may have been drunk when he hit a police carâ€™), so weâ€™re choosing new teams. Weâ€™d love to have you all on ours.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in the future.

While I’m not one to kick a guy when he’s down, Art is a different case. He should have seen this coming. Of course, he didn’t because his ego wouldn’t let him. For a while now I have ceased posting or even reading OrangeJuiceBlog much any more. It is too depressing to watch a once respectable blog collapse in upon itself like a black-hole.
Art has managed to establish himself as the village idiot, only rivaled by Stanley Fiala and Steve Rocco. While I will keepÂ Art’s train wreckÂ on our blog roll (on the left) for the benefit of our few readers who may want to rubberneck, I am dumping the garbage that has been cluttering up our rss feeds in our Liberal Launching Pad.
