News that AOL is buying the Huffington Post for $315 million (see HERE) has got me thinking.
How much could I get for selling this blog to some conglomerate?
The bean counters here at Applesauce World Headquarters have donned their green eyeshades and are weighing the possibilities.
But I’m not going to sell out to just any suitor who comes along. I don’t want to negotiate with any outfit that’s also in the business of making munitions or contributing to Republican politicians or anything unsavory like that. And, of course, I’ll want to maintain editorial control.
What do you think, boys and girls? How would you like your pithy comments to be published by some large, impersonal corporation as opposed to the mom-and-pop (well, pop, anyway) operation you’ve come to know and love?
I’ll tell you what. If any of you want to form a consortium to buy me out and save this blog from the evil clutches of insatiable corporatism, let me know. I’m all ears.
