Guest Column #9 (by AJ)
Well, in the interests of a free and fair media, the Author has graciously allowed me to come onto this blog in order to present a more conservative viewpoint against the hedonism that seems to be infecting the media these days.
It bothers me immensely that sensationalism seems to persist in media so often. It's gotten to the point where the last several guest columns that have gotten their own spots on A Seraphim Dream have been about smoking adictive substances, amino acids, and cannibalism (not in that order).

What happened to journalists reporting facts and stories instead of opinions and rants?
It's us. It's our fault. We demanded media that was light and frothy and sold cars and commercials like candy instead of media that was responsible and uncommercial.

I despise this unwarranted attack on an innocent conservative citizen. AJ is a great American! How dare you make a mockery of him in this column with your fancy language and blinding satire!

You illegal alien, living in this country unfairly, stealing from others and attacking a great American, how could you...
