The Silence of the Lambs

Babalú's "magnificent cadre" of contributing writers appears to have taken a vow of silence or had one forced on them. Perhaps they are all on Spring break as I suggested in an earlier post, or, more likely, they are hiding from Val's autos-da-fé. Since many of them blog anonymously, they must feel a bit apprehensive (to say the least) at Val's kamikaze outing of Killcastro on his own blog. A friend suggested to me that Val is holding his writers "hostage." I should not be surprised. The trick will be to hold his readers hostage. The commenters have already deserted Babalú in droves.

I bet they are all in shock Manuel, and realizing the kind of snake Val is.

You are right, Vana. There is no other explanation for their communal hibernation. Now it remains to be seen whether any of them has the intellectual honesty to speak out against this outrage. This is their opportunity to exit Babalú with their heads help high. It may be their last opportunity.
