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...
Jotting down a thousand things is not an accomplishment. When I’ve got an opinion, I’ve got it, whether I scribble it away or not.
The accomplishment is in meeting up with the “nobodies” who read The Blog That Nobody Reads. I haven’t met any of you face-to-face, and who knows, maybe every last one of you is a puppy-raping child-abducting psychopath. I mean, hypothetically.
But in my correspondences with you, online and off, I have to comment on one thing: I’m just completely blown way by the points you have to make about things. This blog — which, throughout two years, I’ve commented repeatedly “nobody reads anyway” — is read by some incredibly deep thinkers. I would never have anticipated this. I am pleasantly surprised that this is the case.
Some folks can hear “Yes, sir! I agree completely! You are so right, sir!” all day long…every day…seven days a week…never get tired of hearing it. I am not one of those people. So I’m glad that when people comment, and they have a different opinion, they at least know why it is that they think the things they think. Mercifully, this blog tends to attract that kind of reader, moreso than most of what we call “blogs.” I’d like to think I’ve been doing something to make it so, although of course I can’t prove it.
You know who you are. Give yourselves a hand. CYL.
