McHenry County Blotto?

There is no truth to the rumor that CEO Jeff Bezos purchased the McHenryCountyBlog, today, for a quarter billion dollars. Nor that Bezos bought the blog -- which covers politics in mostly agrarian McHenry County -- for the opportunity to "put that gluepot out to pasture".

This hasn't, however, changed the fact that the McHenryCountyBlog has been, metaphorically speaking, out to pasture for the past couple of hours. And by "out to pasture" your LakeCountyEye means deadair flatlined.  As of this posting, there is Nothing Found on the McHenryCountyBlog:

McHenry County Blog: Nothing Found
Honesty, when this refreshing, is always to be commended. Your LakeCountyEye nonetheless has long suspected there was a finite amount of bandwidth available over in McHenry County, and this may just confirm it.

For the record, this blog -- the LakeCountyEye -- is also for sale to the right buyer and at the right price. Your LakeCountyEye knows that those reconnaissance bots are surveilling this blog. Note to operatives at give your LakeCountyEye a call. There's lots of pasture land over here in Lake County, too.

That defamation suit may be old news.

I noticed that the McHenry County Blog is back up!
