This post is related to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, refers to local politics and personalities, and will most likely bore the vast majority of my readers. Skip this one if you feel the need.
Campbell Webster thinks that it is best to hide and obscure your convictions and ideas in the name of politics. Taking shots at Cynthia Dunsford and Nils Ling.As a crackerjack columnist in the local newspaper on PEI, and this being his second (at least) attempt to take a swipe at the blogging community, it seems that Campbell just doesn’t have enough interesting and originalÂ things to say. Campbell seems to like to regurgitate old ideas in weird semi-pompus language in the local news rag alongside Contract Bridge and advertisements for the local tractor pull.
Thankfully, however, Campbell was smart enough to buy out a defunct coffee shop in Charlottetown and put up the Timothy’s flag, resulting in Charlottetown’s third most decent (until Mavors took that spot) Coffee shop.
The sad thing? Campbell just could be an interesting personality. He’s produced a successful play that is only going to get more successful, he has been running a few important local businesses and with a few creative-writing courses, his writing just might become palatable.
But really, Campbell. The whole blog-fight thing? Boring as hell.
