“who’s on scott watch?” here at the Edge

Is it any coincidence that tomorrow, Saturday, May 5, 2012 we will experience a “supermoon”?  That’s right!  It will be the biggest full moon of 2012.  Why “coincidence?” you ask.  Well, Saturday(s) is the official day of choice at the Wakefield Doctrine to engage the werld in conversation via a live, real time medium.  That is correct.  The gentleman who has brought us the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers  also hosts a radio program.  Every Saturday evening, between the hours of 8:00 pm and 8:45 pm EST, anyone can call in to what some call the Saturday Night Drive Time Call In Show.  If you go to the the Wakefield Doctrine page there will be a phone number and access code number.  And there you go.  You can call from home, the library, when you are out to dinner (that would be fun)…virtually anywhere.

Back to the title of this post.  Pretty much the last words written by my last guest post- host.  How about a round of applause for the roger of all rogers, the Ragman himself, RCoyne.  Now, let’s get back to this “supermoon” thing.  Ya know how they say “watch out – all the crazies come out when there’s a full moon”?  Well, the first thing I thought of was the potential mayhem that could lurk around every corner from wacked out scotts.  LOL  Holy shit!  It never dawned on me.  Once upon a time,  I used to make  astrological associations between water signs and full moons and such, but knowing about the Doctrine relegates that silliness and such to the domain of the “unenlightened”. (psst….still have a soft spot for the astrology thing. don’t tell!)

So the question remains: aside from the scotts, what can you expect from the clarks and rogers around you the night of a “supermoon”?  Lines are open.

    not to belabor the metaphor of the scott as pack animal i.e. baying at the moon…but they are the least (conventionally) inhibited of us and therefore have something to teach…both good and bad qualities.

    rogers are more difficult in that they are not ‘externality based’ (as are scotts) but rather are more subjectively focused…not to be confused with clarks, though.

    it might be helpful to think of rogers as, “scotts with musical teeth” or “clarks with one of those police sketch artists (to illustrate the idea they are trying to convey)”.

    After all, scotts ARE tenacious

      That is one adjective you could use. LOL Hey, since you are a scott, let me tell you how enjoyable I find it when I don’t fall down (so you guys can trample and consume and then spit me out). Today was a day during which I donned a scottian suit. Man, was I on fire. My shift as cashier was at the express lane, register 1. Directly opposite the customer service desk, it is the busiest register in the store. Always.
      Continuous flow of consumers. Scene: mid afternoon. A large, early 30’s burly of a scottian man attempts to accost me with his greeting. Not nasty, but extremely aggressive. The quickest type verbal exchange ensued. (it is the 10 items or less lane afterall). It was very much like sparring. Transaction concluded – you could say it was a draw. When I let him go for a penny though, he went all soft. Point to clark with scottian suit:)
