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...
Received a personal e-mail the other day from President Obama. I notice He consistently applies salutation on His notes and letters the same way: Christian name of the recipient, space, two dashes, new line. An impressive, crisp, efficient flourish with a distinct overtone of “You owe me, I don’t owe you,” the tenor of a Field Marshall summoning the soldiers to arms.
I enjoy talking about fundraising deadlines as much as I imagine you enjoy hearing about them.
But this Friday’s deadline is important.
It’s a chance for us to prove how we’re different from any campaign in politics: We rely on ordinary Americans giving what they can — one grassroots donation at a time.
This is not just a campaign. It’s a chance for each of us as citizens to organize and change the course of history.
And before we close the books this Friday at midnight, I hope you’ll become a part of it.
Please donate $3 or more today.
I’ll be calling some grassroots donors like you by phone this week, so I can say thank you.
And if I don’t call you, there’s a chance I’ll see you at dinner with three other supporters sometime soon.
Even if I don’t get to thank you personally, every single donation counts…
Thanks for doing your part,
So, noticing something vital seemed to be missing from this polished overture, I replied with an earnest inquiry:
Can you please refresh my memory? What exactly is it we’re trying to accomplish here?
