Changes To SWB

Our New Owners

Yup, we being taken over.

This is for the good.  After being inactive for a while, another site has inquired about taking over Screaming Weasel.  There will be changes, it will retain some of  the sarcasm, but will lose some of the “rantiness”  and negativity that it had when it started around 2005-2006 and rant blogs were the fad – although we will gripe a little through it,  and SWB will be the occasional guest writer.

We think you’ll like it … and what it will present about Pittsburgh.

    I just want to say that there’s a place in the world for sarcasm and ranting — not violence or mean-ness, necessarily — but ranting and blowing off steam. I hope that part of the blog will exist somewhere or that the writers of the blog (“screaming weasel” –who have been kind to me and my blog) will have some place to air whatever they want and that no part of their voice will be lost on the web.

      Agreed, and sometimes that’s the only way people know you are unhappy with situations. We just want to take what SWB has always done and make it effective for change. SP just wants to make sure the sarcasm and ranting we do doesn’t overshadow what work people are doing to actually make things better in Pittsburgh (and we’re not talking about the politicians tying to get news sound bites, etc). As we said, we’re not getting rid of SWB, and we have only so much duct tape, so The Weasel will be loose at times 🙂
