Alarming News: I like Morgan Freeberg. A lot.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: We were following a trackback and thinking "hmmm... this is a bloody excellent post!", and then we realized that it was just part III of, well, three...Damn. I wish I'd written those.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: ...I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is an intriguing guy...[he] asks great questions and answers others with style, flair, reason and wit. On the blogroll he goes. Make him a part of your regular blogospheric reading. I certainly will.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is brilliant.
Common Sense Junction: Misha @ Anti-Idiotarian never ceases to amaze me. He keeps finding other good blogs. I went over to A.I. this morning for my daily Misha fix and he had found this guy named Morgan Freeberg in Fair Oaks, California, that has a blog, House of Eratosthenes. Freeberg says its "The Blog That Nobody Reads" but it may now become the blog that everybody reads.
Jaded Haven: Good God, Morgan, you cover a topic from front to back with a screwy thoroughness I find mind boggling. I'm in awe of your thought proccesses, my friend, you're an exceptional talent. You start by throwing in the kitchen sink, tie in someone's syphilitic uncle, bend around a rip tide of brilliance and bring it all home in a neat, diamond dripping package of an exceptionally readable moment of damn fine wordsmithing. I love reading you.
Mein Blogovault: Make "the Blog that No One Reads" one of your daily reads.
Philmon: When Morgan meanders, stick with him - he's got a point and it'll be worth it in the end. He's not a hit-and-run snarky quip kind of guy. The pieces all fall into place like tumblers in a lock and bang! He's opened a cognative door for you.
Rightlinx: Morgan at House of Eratosthenes is one of the best writers out there. I read him nearly every day because he manages to provide an interesting perspective, even though I don't always agree.
Poetic Justice: Cletus! Ah gots a laiv one fer yew...
There’s a shark rule in place. If the sharks are not that hungry, and you somehow know this, it’s okay to look a little bit like a seal. But if they haven’t eaten all year long, which is the case with our lefty media here, then merely casting a shadow under the waves, is good enough to ask for trouble.
Phil lives in the state, and has some thoughts.
Interesting point made by Kingjester:
…unfortunately, while Democrats tend to shore up their ranks and defend their own, like a lioness defends her cub, Republicans tend to banish our wounded, like a leper to a Leper Colony.
Joe Getty, on the radio, made another good point: Everyone wants to talk about how outraged they are. Nobody ever talks the science about this stuff, as in, “by the way, that isn’t true.” Which strikes me as a bit odd, now that you mention it; Akin’s claim sounds to me, credibility-wise, a notch or three under the chestnut that your dotty old aunt sends you in the e-mail about gang initiation rituals involving driving around with the headlights off.
Well, if he’s to drop out, today’s the day to do it, and I hear he isn’t planning to.
I really can’t think of any substantial difference between “You can’t get pregnant from a legitimate rape” and “If you have a business, you didn’t build that.” Neither is true, and to the extent that either might be just partially true, the information would be so useless that it’s a daunting exercise to figure out what the point could possibly be; they’re both blisteringly offensive to whoever might be in the situation under discussion. Both statements imply someone let their mouth get ahead of their brain a little. But one has to do with the economy, which would, in a rational world, take center stage morning, noon and night; the other one was spoken by a Republican. And so we are to be obsessed with the Republican.
No policy differentials under discussion here. None at all. We’re just having an argument about how these politicians feel. That, right there, is the thing we have to get away from — that is the big lie. The people who think this is really important, and must somehow be acted-upon, are the people who are trying to put together a country in which “everybody” has a place, a role to play…and yet, how exactly is this to be acted-upon?
Search-and-destroy, that’s how. Oh look, a politician who has spoken some politically-incorrect thoughts about rape and pregnancy. Abracadabra! He should go away…
Update: Looks like it worked…
b>Update: No, it didn’t…
