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...
Two great-lookin’ babes with wonderful minds. Should I mention them both in the same post? They’re not exactly of the same mind, and there’s a chance someone will get offended, I suppose…but it’s always better to ask forgiveness than permission.
Becky, the Girl in Short Shorts Talking About Whatever, registered and entered a few words after I picked on her rather mercilessly. Her anti-war passions are misguided, but she has a lot of synapses firing per millisecond upstairs and we’re plum pleased to see her stopping by. Legs ‘n all. And we still think she’s right a lot more often than she’s wrong — just puts a lot more thought into how to win, than what’s going to happen after she does so win. Oh well. She’ll come around someday.
I know she will, because she’s not one of these pure-bred small-l libertarians who obsess over legalizing pot and heroin and crystal meth — and beyond that, their concerns over individual rights come to a screeching halt. You know the type. Becky isn’t like that at all. She thinks for herself; I mean, she really does. She’s a feminist, Catholic, gay, conservative in her own way…I think pro-gun…the girl just isn’t that anxious to fit into any kind of cookie-cutter.
She’s not that eager to play on a level field, either. If I wrote up some stuff that as hurriedly presumed nasty things about gay people, as some of the stuff she’s written about straight white guys…whew. But oh well. When she applies her mental horsepower, it’s considerable and she makes a lot of good points about things you don’t see made anywhere else. Well worth reading.
Speaking of which. Hawkins put out his list of favorite blogs for the quarter and no, we didn’t make the cut. Hey, remember this is The Blog That Nobody Reads.
However, #10 was blogger pal and uber-cutie Cassy Fiano…whose bikini pics make us feel all dirty inside because of the yawning gap of an age difference. And she was kind enough to put in a good word for us. A very, very good word.

House of Eratosthenes: Smart commentary with interesting stories you can’t find anywhere else.
While we’re wiping that lipstick off our face, you know you can take a couple of eggs and fry ‘em up on those big red ears of ours. This one made our day.
For the first two years after we registered with Sitemeter, a “good” day for this blog would have been anything north of a hundred hits — which is pathetically low. For the last three months or so we’re averaging well above double that, and the pattern is not at all consistent with “flash in the pan” stuff. These seem to be brand new nobodies not coming by to not read the Blog That Nobody Reads — and they’re not coming by each and every single day. Actually, the last time we fell short of our old hundred-hit target was over a month ago, for one day, when Sitemeter had an outage and all the hits that would’ve been logged instead went in the phantom zone.
In short — the evidence seems to indicate we’ve made a lot of new friends. We’re happy you’re here. Look around, kick off the shoes, have a cold one, drop a note.
