The mission statement of this BLOG is to correct or answer any or all information posted in Smart Remarks, written by Gil Smart. You can visit his website at http://smartremarks.blogspot.com. I have sat by idly for long enough reading inaccurate, misleading, and biased reports in the Sunday paper not titled "Perspective" -- but rather "Lancaster".
A retort is a quick reply to a question or remark (especially a witty or critical one).
Currently, as of the grand opening of the Smart Retorts, there are about five "official" ones, and one "pretort" ranging on issues from Rick Santorum to the failed Lancaster county library tax. You can view those original ones at the Original Smart Retorts Online Archive linked to the right. Please note that a link cannot always be provided to Gil's column that appears in the Lancaster section of the Lancaster Sunday newspaper. Gil's weblog appears to be on "hiatus" as well.
Enjoy the site and I look forward to bringing weekly retorts in response to Gil's column.
