What it’s all about:
Simone (me) and Ehren (him) were longtime colleagues who, circa 2007, recently thought we might be separated by the vagaries of nonprofit funding and the ebb and flow of executive leadership. We decided we needed a shared blog so we could continue entertaining/distracting each other with bits of joy, hilarity, and outrage. (Mostly various degrees of outrage, ranging from the peeved to the apoplectic.)
A lot of our shared concerns arise from the growing tendency of American culture to encourage and reward mediocrity, hence the title of our blog.

Of course, it’ll be hard for you to attribute anything without our last names. I’m Simone Parrish. I’ll ask Ehren if it’s OK to put his last name here.
 I used to be able to type/write “its” and “it’s” in their respective appropriate contexts without even thinking. Now most times I write either, I have to sing the Strong Bad song (mp3).
