On current (and future) events

Day 1,989, 07:06 Published in USA USA by Pfeiffer.

So, I've been reading the media lately...the non-campaign media...and, well,

So, I'm writing. I give you all a gift of words. Sure, it isn't as intimate as

the air from my lungs

but, I have peeked into the future a bit. Things aren't as grim as some would try to convince you. Be warned, this article contains

I've been looking around at some of the newer/less well known/whatever you want to call them players, and it's basically this:

Cause we have the talent, they just aren't being encouraged, so I'm going to do that now...which is totally not me, I don't really seek out people to give advice to and whatnot. BUT I've made the mistake of putting my faith in lazy old players before, and even though I'm the one who dragged Josh back thinking it might be beneficial...I realize now that it was a mistake. We don't need people who don't care, or who are just doing something to fill time until we bore them. We need people who are having fun, and who make their own fun...because that sort of play is infectious. I make my own fun, but I have trouble spreading it.

These are some of those people:

Derphoof - Enormous potential, check out his paper. Dude could do stuff, just needs to decide to make the leap from commentary to active leadership.

Duncan Crowe - Just because he'll be President soon that doesn't mean he shouldn't have a spot here. He'll have had his time before school starts back up after the summer.

saraht0ga - If someone can convince Sarah to make the leap from small party work to bigger things, she'd be a great asset in a cabinet, and could easily be a contender for the Presidency one day. She enjoys media and radio, and is always fun on IRC. The talent is there, just have to light the spark.

gif interlude

Othere - It's obvious to anyone paying attention that Othere will be President if he wants to. His work in Interior and with the USWP show his abilities. He's chatty on IRC if you want to get to know him better...which I highly suggest.

crimsonninja - He returned semi-recently after a small break (and a name change). Definitely has a skillset worth using, even if he's less active than he was a few months ago. If you know him, message him and tell him to get a bit more active. Would like to see him writing again, maybe learning the ropes in State.

The Mike - No, he's not just on the list because he loves ponies and is in UM, but it didn't hurt. He wiped his paper to start fresh, but I suggest you read his (very long) article. If he keeps his activity up, he's one to keep an eye on.

What some of you are thinking while you read this

Mercurius100 - This is more of a personal/vanity choice. I doubt Merc ever makes the leap from party and MU work to government work in any substantive role...he likes what he likes...but he is still very much worth a mention. He's dedicated, and will figure out how to do what needs doing, even if it isn't incredibly obvious how to get it done at the time.

As a tip to these guys, you're allowed to just make it up.

it can work, I promise

Most of my best ideas were just things that popped into my head.

Had this conversation before

So, to the people listed...and any other new person interested in getting started with Congress or a cabinet job, or to your party leaders, message the President, feel free to message me.

All I ask is that, when you're ready,

So, if you made it through this entire thing, as a reward...I give you River Song.

As always, I remain,

Welcome to the game, Pfeiffer.

Took you long enough.

Also, I love it when people just start getting into Dr Who and fall so deeply in love that they overuse references. Warms my hearts.

Pfeiffer. Day 1,989, 07:18

>just start

restarting, thanks to my dad deciding not to be a snob about the new ones and having someone to talk to about it.

I am new to the online community though, loving the rage over the 50th.

I'm still working on the 1960s Doctor Who, finishing up the first Doctor. I'll catch up to the 11th Doctor in a couple years or so...

It's funny... because I feel the exact same way... except it's about people who started watching when the 9th started.

Not that I'm going to get uppity about a tv show: Everyone should get to enjoy.

We also don't need people who make up imaginary phone conversations when they don't get their way Pfeiffer. 🙂

How is it that you write such a wonderful article like this and everyone who reads it still somehow manages to hate you when they're done.

Good stuff in here.

Othere has been in Beast Mode since being named Secretary of Interior.

who are you and what have you done with the real Pfeiffer?!

Pfeiffer. Day 1,989, 07:45

Still me, just tired of the bitching. Normally I would just talk to these people privately when I see them...but if people are going to be giving public handjobs to people in their papers, might as well give them to people who deserve them.

fingerguns Day 1,989, 07:50

lol that response was incredibly revealing.

Crimsoninja is the only one I disagree with.

Pfeiffer. Day 1,989, 07:50

He was good before he poofed. He wasn't on my first draft, but I decided to give him a chance anyway based on how persistent he was when he first came back.

Nice counterbalance to Frost's article. Thumbs up.

Pfeiffer writing an article praising people? giving them words of encouragement? Getting bored huh?

This is in response to people's response to Josh's article. His actual article was boring, and didn't warrant a response.
