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...
In about a week and a half, Our First Holy Divine Man-God-Boy-King President has acquired and released a form of identification, and then claimed credit for dispatching the most wanted man in the entire world. His is a unique case in which these achievements are roughly equivalent.
I’m ready to take a new approach on this, since I’m still trying to process and organize my reactions. People are still bitching about my posts being too long. So — let’s just list the reactions and call it good. One per line and then bail out.
It occurs to me that the result would be just as worthy an artifact to seal up in a time capsule, for the edification of my grandchildren, as any other. So. Without further ado.
1. Chuckling at the talking heads on the news getting “Obama” all mixed up with “Osama.”
2. Marveling at the consistency with which conservatives place the interests of country over party.
3. Wondering if liberals would handle it the same way if Osama bit the mat during the previous administration.
4. No, not really.
5. Thankful for the fighting men in our Navy SEAL units, and in all our military, and the gals too.
6. Still can’t believe Obama is so inept at PR, that victory over bin Laden has turned into a net loss for Him.
7. Absolutely sickened by the decision not to release photos, and genuinely so, not putting on an act.
8. Trying to think of the last good thing I ever learned about this President, that I was allowed to verify for myself.
9. Taking note, again and again and again, of a three-stanza-anthem that has emerged among Obama’s supporters:
• a. Why should He release anything He doesn’t have to prove anything and He doesn’t owe anybody anything;
• b. Place all your faith in these (nameless) wise sages who surround The Obama, because that’s what I’m doing;
• c. Feck off you’re unworthy and should be banished from our super-perfect Obamatopia.
10. Wondering how this affects the domestic issues in the long run.
11. Hoping desperately that the White House has already run into that gut-wrenching “we’ve overplayed our hand” feeling.
12. In a state of dread over what wretched ideas we’re going to see, should that not be the case.
13. In a state of abject bewilderment that such smart people can make the same mistakes over and over again.
14. Isn’t this the equivalent of “parallel parking by Braille”?
15. Gloating that the “birther” movement seems to have declined by half, or more.
16. Noting that this is precisely what we were told, with such condescending certainty, would not happen.
17. Waiting for the apology that I know will not come.
18. Looking forward to many years coming & going without my having to hear “it wouldn’t convince anybody anyway…”
19. Knowing that isn’t going to happen either.
20. Wondering what kind of people would toss out the “wouldn’t convince anyone” bromide without feeling deep shame.
21. Not looking forward to coming into contact with such people.
22. Still walking on air because Osama bin Laden’s dead.
23. Befuddled about the Too Civilized and Evolved to See Any Good Here crowd.
24. Have no idea what in the world is driving them.
25. No wait, now that I think on it, the problem is I have way too many ideas about what is, or might be, driving them.
26. None of these ideas say anything good about them for being the way they are.
27. Or about the rest of us, for putting up with them.
28. Wondering what act of revenge Al Qaeda will try to launch over here.
29. No, not really.
30. But cautious vigilance is always a good thing…to whatever extent it’s my place to exercise it.
31. Wondering where premium gas is going to be by Memorial Day weekend.
32. Hoping everybody looking for work, that is ready willing & able to accept a job offer, gets one.
33. Wondering how that would work for them, if these jackasses didn’t show up talking the economy down every day.
34. Wishing a case of worms on them. Seriously, if you don’t know things will get better, just say you don’t know.
35. Trying to figure out why, if President Awesome is so Awesome, it costs a billion dollars to re-elect Him.
