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...
Just two reservations: I think I actually lost something off my life expectancy from all the grabby kids. The crowd thickened slowly over the two or three hours we were there, and by the time we left I was in a poor disposition. The Bay Area has that effect on me. Although it was gratifying when I got that look-of-death from the brittle aging hippie lady who overheard me explaining to the boy that seahorses don’t need their females for anything. Bay Area hippies are a special breed; they seem to have put quite a bit of distance between themselves and the “make love not war” deal. It’s like the salt air mixes in with the drugs in their system and creates some kind of corrosive acid.
The other reservation was something I should have expected in the heart of Angry-Hippie territory: What I called the “Humans Are Bastards” room. All global warming, all the time, every square inch. Might as well have plastered an enormous Obama logo on the far wall, floor-to-ceiling. No doubt about it, our filthy species is frying the planet, can’t you hear the sizzling?
Your li’l darlings will learn all about the issue, except for one thing: All the uncertainties involved. That part is conveniently left out. I’m thinking of providing the aquarium with a donation…it is a worthy cause…along with a letter expressing my thoughts about it, both positive and otherwise. Because there are some parts of that final room that, I think, cross a line. Not because of my skepticism and my leanings — the items in that room, that I have in mind, are just plain and simply inappropriate.
