Val Prieto Sues for Peace in Babalú-Palmetto Blogwar

And Is Rebuffed By Rick

"I am asking you nicely here in public in your domain to please just leave us alone... You don't like me or Henry or our contributors and I can tell you that we certainly don't hold you in any high regard as well. That's just the way it is. You have an audience and a loyal readership and I wish you continued success. Just please, do us all a favor, and let us be." -- Val Prieto [to Rick] @ Stuck on the Palmetto, Sept. 17.

"Val: Quite simply, SotP comments on things going on in SoFla. You, your blog and your views are part of that. So guess what? Yep, things are going to continue as they have from the day I started this blog." -- Rick [to Val] @ SotP, Sept. 17.

Let us issue our own sincere call for peace among the belligerents. There it is.


Our call to "give peace a chance" has fallen on deaf ears. To be honest, the first deaf ears it fell upon were ours. We don't believe in an artificial peace. Peace can only be obtained through the natural evolution of conflict. If conflict is suppressed, peace can never be certain or permanent. Not until Rick and Val have vented all their bile can there ever be a real peace between them. This can only be the product of a consensus on their mutual interests. Rick is obviously convinced that there are still advantages that can accrue to SotP by continuing this feud. So long as this is the case, no amount of pleading on Val's part will put an end to hostilities. At some point, regardless of Val's avowals, Henry or Val will rise again to the provocation. Nothing has been settled. Val has shown his weakness in suing for a premature peace. Rick has shown his ignobility by rebuffing him. And so it stands.

You mean Val really asked for a truce, I'm surprised!

Practically on hands and knees. Read Val's pathetic plea at:

Rick said...

Another post, Manny? And a link in the comments! Woo hoo and...thanks!

The only reason you want peace is because your readerless whining is ignored even more than usual.



Manuel A.Tellechea said...


Yes, a link in the comments; a dead wire. You deserve no less.

In Cuba, you and Henry would settle your differences in a dual.


That wouldn't work.

Neither of you would show up on the field of honor.

Then your second and Henry's second would have to fight.

Alex with one sword in each hand dueling against himself.

I can see it.

And somehow he would lose.


Manuel A.Tellechea said...


About your golfing, Rick.

One suggestion.

Knickers with woolen socks.

Vana said...

Wow Manuel he pleaded, not very manly if you ask me

Alex said...

The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it; if you can't ignore it, top it; if you can't top it, laugh at it; if you can't laugh at it, it's probably deserved.
Hahahahah, The PeaceMaker Manuel. Actually, professor Esel...look it up manuel.

Alex said...
