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...
RevolutionOfCG answers his critics (not quite all the potty-mouth words have been bleeped):
This is not my idea of enlightened discourse. But it closely reflects a lot of the bullshit I’ve been hearing for a few years now…by which I mean the straw-man arguments being thrown in this guy’s face by the caricatures of his Obama-loving critics.
You know what really ratcheted this up in volume, and down in civility? That big slab of red meat Rush Limbaugh threw to the Obamamaniacs early in the year when he said he wanted Mister Wonderful to fail. That sent the signal out from the hive headquarters down to the lowliest ant: Get the word out, opposition to us is opposition to “doing nice things for people.” And then the leftists went into attack mode, and have been stuck there ever since.
Rush turned over a big rock so we could see the slimy venomous things scurrying around underneath. It was risky, but it paid off and it was a public service.
People who don’t value individual achievement and feelings of self-worth and commitment and duty, don’t want anybody else to value these things either. So yes, in my experience this guy is parodying his critics accurately; in fact, in some ways his illustration is a little bit too kind.
