Hey Paul

Looks like you have some nasty bunions!

One of my more evident deformities . . .

(Are you a podiatrist?)

I wish you wouldn't post entries like this one. It ruins the impact of the other more meaningful entries. Someone should tell you to stop wasting time on this when you are on vacation. I find this very distasteful.

Paul Levy said...

"Someone" just did!

I am more than a little surprised that it bothers you so much, though. Maybe you could explain why.

Anonymous 9:07: I was going to write "Oh, Lord, bring back the turtles," but then I saw your comment. I'm pretty astonished. A newspaper has comics, political cartoons, puzzles, yet still is a rock solid way to understand the world around you. I think this blog is the same. Plus you're not exactly paying by the word.

Maybe your post was intended to be a joke? If so, good for you. A great "publication" like this blog should be varied and sometimes fun, even funny.

Yes, Anon 9:07, we need another colorless, bland, impersonal policy wonk blog. Mr. Levy, keep the blog just the way it is: completely unpredictable, open, human. Yikes, though, you've sure got you some pretty ugly feet.

Nasov,

'twas a joke, but if you have to ask . . .

:)

Anon 1:23,

Hmm, my mom thought they were cute, but that was a "few" years ago.

People should put their best face forward, not parts of their bodies others would rather not see. I am such a fan when you write about issues like SEIU. I know this proves you have a lighter side, but its really not that creative to take pictures of your feet.

I have been away preparing for and taking my daughter 600 miles to college, so reading this post and ESPECIALLY the comments, gave me a much-needed LOL while I miss my daughter! (my only kid).

Now you are only allowed by your readers to write about serious issues. What I see, whatever the cosmesis of the feet, is a working guy happy to be in bare feet - something which I enjoy every day in my retirement. You go, guy!

And BTW,even I as a pathologist can recognize the bunions - but I never put them as cause of death in any of my autopsy reports. (:

My problem is I can't see my toes anymore. Need to lose weight.

Great post BTW. Forget what the various Anonymous's say. This is your blog. You ought to be able to post anything you want here.
