Billy Dennis

It was Billy Dennis who first got me into blogging. I had found his blog, “Peoria Pundit,” and was inspired to do my own reporting and publishing in a similar vein. Billy was generous and helped me learn the ins and outs of the blogosphere. He was always encouraging, even when he […]

Stupid things that have come out of Billy Dennis’s blog

If you haven’t noticed, Billy Dennis has been on a crusade against Rush Limbaugh. Lately he’s taken to putting up post after post after post of “stupid” Rush Limbaugh quotes–about one an hour. I thought, just for fun, we’d turn the tables and see if there are any “stupid” Billy Dennis quotes we could […]

Peoria Pundit responds to Mayor Ardis’s comments

A post worth reading: Ardis needs to use ‘midwestern common sense,’ not just talk about it from Peoria Pundit. Check it out.

Peoria Pundit lost in migration

Billy Dennis informed me that he’s in the middle of a site migration, and that’s why you’ll likely get a “server not found” or similar error message if you try to visit his site this morning. He’s working on getting the site back up as soon as possible.

Council coverage falls off without Ahl; blogs pick up slack

It used to be that you could count on WCBU to cover any city council meeting held on a Tuesday night, including important budget discussions like the one happening tonight. But since former news director Jonathan Ahl left the station, coverage has fallen off. It appears now that only regular city council meetings (twice […]

GateHouse Media continues to spiral downward

GateHouse Media, the parent company of the Peoria Journal Star and Peoria Times-Observer, saw its stock fall to just 44¢ per share at the close of trading today. Also, according to Compliance Reporter:

GateHouse Media’s corporate family rating and probability of default rating was downgraded last Monday by Moody’s Investors Service, on concerns the […]

Peoria Pundit evicted from hosting service

I got the following e-mail from Billy Dennis. He’s moving his entire BlogPeoria Project to new hosting company. He’s in hopes that this will finally resolve the problems he’s been having with his sites going down so much.

It seems like my hosting company finally got sick of my constant emails. They suspended the […]

Prominent blogger defends subjective, secretive plans to squander taxpayer money

It’s not every day that a blogger comes right out and scoffs at objective, public processes for spending taxpayer money. But one prominent blogger has done just that. Billy Dennis says that making decisions via an objective, rational process is ludicrous and will result in poor decisions, like the failed “New Coke” formula.

That’s […]

Pundit problems

If you’re having trouble accessing the Peoria Pundit site, so is Billy Dennis. I received this e-mail from him moments ago:

Here’s what I know. My server on which sites are hosted was experiencing heavy loads all day yesterday. I submitted five trouble tickets on the issue, one each time the server was […]

Peoria Pundit is down

I got this e-mail from Billy Dennis:

The idiots that I STLL use for dmain name registration let my registration lapse without sending me a bill.

And their billing department closed down immediately after they shut it off.

So PP is down till tomorrow.

I left the misspellings so everyone would know it was […]
