Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

The blog war involving Stuck on the Palmetto, Critical Miami and the Daily Pulp would be comic if it weren't so dumb. The battle, it seems, is over the anonymity of a guy named Rick -- who has been writing on Stuck on the Palmetto for a long time....and now says he won't blog anymore because

Bob Norman has threatened to tell the world of his identity.

Ole Rick and others say that blogging can and should be anonymous. For the record, I HATE anonymous bloggers. They, in my view, are chickenshit people who don'[t stand behind their words. Bob Norman didn't out the guy. I would have in his shoes.

So come on Bob, give me his name and I'll print it on this blog and in the newspaper.

What say?

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
