Possibly they bypass his agent this way and get a better deal. O, Ruben! You’re so wily!

    So there’s your middle ground, no longer excluded, and invited to the prom, possibly only to have a bucket of pig’s blood dumped on it, but still. It’s nice to be asked.

    Interesting side note: Your post consisted of excluded extremities, for me at least, because the tweets you cite didn’t show up but I could see them in the post when I read it in my feedly rss aggregator.

    Haha! Just kidding! That wasn’t interesting.

    But I’m looking at your site on a Mac using Chrome and really can’t see the tweets here. In case it’s an issue with you new format?
