Normally, I ignore the Mpls Mirror, which is Terry Yzaguirre's attempt at blogging gloriously free of the conventional constraints of proper spelling, grammar and punctuation.
Yes, I'm quite aware the Mirror doesn't like me very much, and the feeling is mutual. So I don't comment on The Cracked Mirror or mention The Cracked Mirror except, for example, when writing about criminal charges leveled against Terry's children or the crazy lawsuits the Yzaguirre family has filed in the court with the help of troubled attorney Jill Clark.
(Want to file a CRAZY lawsuit? Get a CRAZY lawyer. Wouldn't that make a great advertisement on the back of a phonebook?)
But every now and then I do check the Mpls Mirror because, who knows? Maybe a stray nugget of info will turn up about Jill Clark and it will prove to be a lead to information when I write Part Fifty-Six Or Whatever It Is of The Madness of Jill Clark.
So at about 2 in the morning, I checked the Mirror. The latest article on the Mirror referred me to Terry's other blog, Unconventional Grandma.
Wow. Turns out I am still capable of being surprised by that category of people some of us just refer to as "The Crazies"...
In a blog post dated January 1, Terry Yzaguirre (we call her "The Yaz") writes that she's had some "life changing issues" that have needed her attention but promises "The Minneapolis Mirror Has Not Gone Anywhere."
(Yes, I could definitely agree with that statement, though not the way it's intended. As for what the life changing issues are, word is these are health issues)
Then, in an editorial written later that same day, "No Hope For The Black Community Until We Get New Leaders, Politicians and Media" Terry Yzaguirre (who is not black, but used the word "We" as though she is) urges readers to check out an editorial at her other blog, Unconventional Grandma.
There, in an editorial directed at (it would appear) the cold, cruel universe, Terry Yzaguirre takes potshots at individuals she herself admits she once admired, specifically Revered McAfee and activist Al Flowers. She also takes an implied potshot at Don Allen of IBNN, with whom Yzaguirre was once so close she was apparently invited to Allen's wedding to Enid Logan Allen.
My goodness, has Yzaguirre woken up to the fact Don Allen is a flim-flam artist? Maybe so!
Besides so-called media Don Allen, singled out for mention and criticism is Insight News, the Spokesman Recorder, and KMOJ.
Wow, Terry! Do you have a single friend left in the world? I mean, not including Level Three Sex Offender Peter Rickmyer, who you once defended in an editorial.
The following sentence contains pure speculation: Once whatever morphine-based pain killer Terry is using wears off and she comes to her senses, she might take down that editorial so, if her car breaks down, she might have one non-family member left in the world who will give her roadside assistance late at night. For that reason, I want to preserve key portions of the editorial in this blog posting, as follows.
(Glaring writing mistakes are exactly as found in the original)
JNS Blog says: Why indeed? But the question I really care about is why this sudden round of denunciations against, for example, Al Flowers? Look at the photo at the top of this blog post showing Terry Yzaguirre meeting Al Flowers.
