Anonymous comments? You're not in the arena, man. If you can't say it to me in person in front of my kids, don't say it.
It does get old to have to always be a monkey in a zoo. I don't know what it's like any more to be anonymous.
Since the advent of the Internet - more recently compounded by blogging - everyone can be a published voice. Any cowardly, anonymous anger-monger can have an audience of thousands. That doesn't make them a journalist any more than my throwing an onion and a few carrots into a pot of boiling water makes me Julia Child.
