Um...actually, I don't remember Shoal Creek. And the oblique allusions you offer don't help much to remind the rest of us just what the heck you're talking about.

When Kiel - an ultra nice man who seems to be your only loyal reader who doesn't come to your blog just to mock it - asks for some clarification, one would think that you'd happily supply it. Without sarcastic remarks ... i.e. never mind ... back.

Until one remembers that you're RonMon.

From Golf Magazine:

Shoal Creek became a symbol of country clubs' exclusionist practices when, in the lead-up to the 1990 PGA Championship, the club's founder, Hall W. Thompson, told the Birmingham Post-Herald that his club would "not be pressured into accepting" black members. "This is our home," he said, "and we pick and choose who we want."

Thompson's comments drew the ire of civil rights activists and caused several of the PGA's corporate sponsors to withdraw $2 million in TV advertising. The club responded nine days before the PGA by extending an honorary membership to Louis J. Willie, a local insurance executive who was black, though not an avid golfer.


There was that so hard, to cut and paste something like that for Kiel, your one loyal reader as opposed to putting in a comment link that doesn't even work.

It would have been even better if you actually wrote two sentences in your own words about the past controversy in the original blog. But teachers are notoriously lazy, so I wouldn't even demand that or fathom you bothering to do that.

By the way, you also made a blatant mistake. Shoal Creek didn't "give up the PGA" as you wrote. The club still hosted that 1990 PGA Championship.

Of course, I wouldn't have felt the need to point this out if you just showed some common respect for your readers - in your case, your one reader Kiel.

wow and wow again. I'm just stunned, as was Chris, that you'd do such a poor job of responding to your fellow-traveller on the liberal media circuit (Kyle).

What going on Monny - are the meds just not working? Or is teaching the liberalist cant to our young finally wearing you down?

And yes - even though you mock Baldy - he WAS correct in pointing out that the 90 PGA WAS held at Shoal Creek...you implied it was relocated.

Finally, I believe the reason few people comment on your posts (other than to make fun of you) is NOT because you are "not salacious enough" but rather because what you write is generally just boring and wrong.
