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...
Oh yeah, definitely, I’m going to be very interested to see what else rolls in from this guy’s account. Can’t wait.
It’s clear to me he couldn’t wait to show the whole world what he’s been doing, and what his face looks like, and most of all how proud he is of the shenanigans. But he doesn’t want to show us what the uniform looks like because he doesn’t want to “ruin that.”
Okay then dickhead, keep on doing it. Enjoy your twelve-year-old scotch and your bloomin’ onion. And think what you want, it’s a free country thanks to men and women much better than you…but whether you want to acknowledge it or not, these expensive drinks are merely tokens. Much like moon-cast shadows, or the tiny piece of ice sticking out above the ocean’s surface warning of an enormous berg beneath. Which, in this analogy, is the gratitude. You get the tasty treats and the liquors, the real veterans get the gratitude.
That was the take-away from all this, right? That some people live their lives finding ways to serve others, and other people live their lives finding ways to sponge off people? That’s the message you’re trying to get across, true? Okay, so noted. You have succeeded.
Thanks for the reminder, and enjoy the perks asshole!
How pathetic. It’s like calling yourself a master car thief, when you’re just running around detaching the hood ornaments because you don’t know how to drive.
And my suggestion for anyone who’s concerned now about paying for the meal of a serviceman in uniform is: Look for the clean teeth. Not that I can speak from experience, but there is this little thing called boot camp where you’re taught to do all the little things…they don’t let you do anything else until you’ve completed it…and from all I’ve managed to learn about it, brushing your teeth in the morning is not an optional thing. I’ve yet to meet a real veteran with teeth like those. Even wounded soldiers with hooks for hands have clean teeth.
