It’s a simple white-on-black Typepad blog, and so far it has no ads and almost no comments. We’re the only other blog that links to it. But the misanthropic “I Hate DeCamp: Dispatches from the highway to hell” is both fun to read and deliciously unrelenting. Its writer deftly summarized Joe Hartnett’s post to our blog yesterday this way:
Even though the storm arrived exactly as forecast and evolved precisely as predicted, conditions were unpredictable and “tricky.” Every significant road running through the town is a county road and therefore not the town’s responsibility. But we’ve done such a good job in the past!
“I Hate DeCamp” reported this story about DeCamp’s hamhanded announcement of price rollbacks earlier this month with a characteristically biting headline: “DeCamp Does Something Good, Still Manages to Make You Hate Them”. It even takes shots at the sainted Clever Commute.
But it’s this post, “My Friday Evening Commute as a William Gaddis Novel” that shows a glimmer of genius. Echoes of John Cheever?
