With characteristic imprecision, Dave Budge maintains that I banned myself from Electric City Weblog because he is mean. Not at all. I sort of like mean people if they have other redeeming qualities. LBJ, Antonin Scalia and Christopher Hitchens come immediately to mind.
Budge isn’t mean. He’s just a jerk. Well, that’s imprecise, too, but I’m trying to avoid profanity. Steve T., however, nails Budge precisely in comment 2.
