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...
From Professor Mondo.
A couple nights ago my gal and I were getting ready to retire for bed and she put the teevee on sleep timer, on that dreadful doofus-dad show Everybody Loves Raymond which is not that unusual. Hey, don’t be hatin’, I like my gal. Well, something happened on the show that made me LOL. Which is very unusual. The brother, Robert, gave some kind of monologue about how the immediate family is a bunch of “dream killers.” Then Raymond’s wife Debra says she wants to do something, Marie starts opining about the various reasons why it isn’t going to work out, and Robert starts droning away in that bass voice of his, “DREAM…KILLER…DREAM…KILLER.”
Some friend-of-a-friend was saying her husband wanted to do what Felix Baumgartner did with the twenty-four mile drop. She said, not as long as he’s married to her. Someone made the mistake of leaving things so I had privileges to comment, and then I made the mistake of referencing the episode described above, with an epilogue line about how bachelors have invented & discovered pretty much damn near everything. Worded it as mirthfully as I could, hope no one took offense.
Ah, what a charming conflict. It’s child-versus-adult, or balloon-tugging-against-string, or dreamer-against-dream-killer. I think we all have some divided loyalties here.
Honey: Uh-uh! Don’t you think about running off doing no daring-do. We’ve been planning this dinner for two months!
Lucius: The public is in danger!
Honey: My evening’s in danger!
Lucius: You tell me where my suit is, woman! We are talking about the greater good!
Honey: ‘Greater good?’ I am your wife! I’m the greatest *good* you are ever gonna get!
