The aforementioned letter was recently reposted on the Screeching Weasel site for the 27 Year anniversary. Once again I was not asked or even told by the forces that be, and was instead eventually informed by a fan. I submitted a comment to the web post, which after a week so far has not been cleared for posting to the site. We all know that sometimes it is better that the things we write in the moment, while still angry, do not get a chance to see the light of day. I am constantly caught between wanting to engage in a debate and wanting to move on. The gray is a place I am used to, and all too often am comfortable existing within this space of action/non-action. Yet, I can't let it go. This nagging feeling I get when I hear about the band formally known as Screeching Weasel, increasing in stead of subsiding over time, has been difficult, if not impossible, to shrug off.
So here is the letter I posted awhile back, which has been reposted on the Weasel Website, and following it is the comment which, as of this time, has not been included.
