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...
Hah! This is great.

On a related subject…yes, it’s making the rounds. The guy seems to have been reading the archives on Yin and Yang, and drinking deeply from that wellspring. So since he’s repeating my stuff, far be it from me to join the chorus of folks who insist he’s a whack-job.
But it is kind of out there…
Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.The unusual thing is, true Lightworkers almost never appear on such a brutal, spiritually demeaning stage as national politics. This is why Obama is so rare. And this why he is so often compared to Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., to those leaders in our culture whose stirring vibrations still resonate throughout our short history.
As I commented to Buck in an offline — the real critical, all-defining question about this, the thing that would have made the delusional ravings look sane, and almost durable, if only it were settled, is — what exactly are these “vibrations”? Forget the specifics. Just clarify whether they occur within the five sense. Is this a worldly vibe, or is it some kind of telepathy?
There’s a reason this wasn’t clarified. The answer to the question, I think, is yes…the vibes occur within the five senses. If you’re an Obama fan, you can see Obama in person and get that tingle up your leg. You can see him on television and still get it. You switch the TV off — no tingle. There’s nothing telepathic, nothing paranormal, no astral projection, no soul connection. The Obama fans like to pretend there is one. There isn’t.
They’re watching each other for signs determining how to react. The crowd says go for it and so they go for it. It’s how they’ve been living their lives…like bugs.
It begs for an eleventh Yin and Yang installment. I might accommodate, because it’s clear this Morford guy believes strongly in what he’s saying and there are a lot of people who agree with him. (Update: This has been done.) And who knows, maybe they’ll get what they want this year.
I have another important question to ask: Has Mary Katherine Ham successfully parodied something? You have to emulate all the silliness involved in something, and then trot out a few extra steps, in order to accomplish successful parody. Quite a ways to go in this case.
And you know, there’s a dark side to this. I’ve yet to be convinced that the Obamessiah’s place is to reform us buck-toothed xenophobes. His fans give me the impression that the objective will be to package us up, seal the box shut, and get rid of us.
I think all this noise his supporters have been making these past six years, about President Bush “quashing dissent” and “putting a chill on free speech” — has been the purest form of psychological projection. During our buyer’s-remorse phase, we’re going to learn that the hard way.
You read it here first, folks.
And although I’ve been seeing links to Morford all over the place, I think Buck deserves the hat tip. I wonder if hat tips emit carbon? I’m sure once Obama’s sworn in, he’ll lose no time in letting me know.
O-ba-ma…on my shoul-der…dum de dum de dum de dum de dum…
