Wow, I stepped away from the blogosphere for the week and I return today to see the aftermath of a war. Peter Getty, who is famous for you know, being a Getty and little else, has a new job writing a blog for SFGate with Billy Getty. The first blog post was an entry titled “What the Butler Didn’t See,” which includes wonderful vomit-inducing prose like this:
SFist wrote about Peter’s post and now Peter is upset that his reflections of self aren’t more well received by the commenters on the site. He is so upset that he responded to the SFist post and has been trolling the comments section of SFist posting defensive missives about anyone that dares criticize his views on being rich.
I am sure all of the members of high society remember fondly those days when publishing required a lot of paper, ink, and expensive printing presses that the poors could not afford. Ah, those were the days when only the opinions of the rich really mattered. I don’t know the Gettys and don’t know what could have inspired Peter (and Billy) to want to open themselves to criticism in this way. But it sure is fun to watch. I wonder how long Pedro’s blog campaign will continue.
