Doc Searls Deserves Abuse for Anti-New Jersey Bigotry

Doc Searls decided to make jokes at the expense of people from New Jersey today. At the same time, he said that no one had criticized him for pointing to a vulgar article that had appeared in The Onion. We don't really care about that, although it's certainly in bad taste.

Most of the people associated with CTDATA are from New Jersey. We don't feel insecure about living here. Nevertheless, we'd like to point out that we don't find his attempt at stereotypical humor funny.

Hey Doc, if this story on your Weblog is the only article of yours that a person ever read, wouldn't most people dismiss you as an uneducated jerk? You have written some really entertaining and educational stuff in the past. Why lower your standards now? And, why should you single out people from the Garden State for abuse because you remember overhearing people using profanity when you were a kid?

Don't blame a state for old bad habits.
