Overheard online — or at least in an email to me today from an exec friend with a gift for apt and nicely ironic turns of phrase:
I know that [name deleted] is hounding you again, my apologies. We are [trying to] get him to focus his attention elsewhere. It has been suggested that he devote his time to writing a blog.
Ah, maybe one day it will become part of correctional programs. You have to clean streets, prune flowerbeds, and … write a blog!
