What do the Russians want with me?

I have finally regained control of my blog after an amazing barrage of messages from Russians. I have removed all the comments from posts — it was easier than going through the more than 20,000 (!) comments and deciphering which ones were real, so I just deleted all of them. If you feel as though you commented before it just may not be deja vu you are experiencing.

So what about my blog attracted the Russian onslaught? I realize I am a man of great importance, but what about my message got me targeted? Am I too obviously American? Did my support of John Bel Edwards in the Louisiana governor’s race mark me as too liberal (I swear it was for two reasons — he is from the same small town my family is from and I could not bring myself to vote for his opponent without needing a shower afterward). The attacks began shortly after his election and continued until this year. Is there a connection?

Good news, though. Obviously those pesky RussiansĀ could not have tampered with the 2016 election as they were clearly too busy spamming the blog of a fifty-something-year-old dude in ‘Merica. I guess that means I am an influencer. Of what, I am not sure…

So, I’m back and will continue to comment on what it means to be over fifty. These colors don’t run!

And if you don’t hear from me for a while, please come look for me…
