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...
What a cocknozzle…mommas, don’t let your babies grow up to be this…
From The Examiner, which sez…
When he got to the window, he told the young lady at the window that Chick-fil-A is a “hateful organization.”
The woman disagreed politely and said the company does not treat any of its customers differently.
“But the corporation gives money to hate groups,” he said, meaning organizations that believe in traditional marriage.
Even after berating her over Chick-fil-A, the employee remained professional and friendly.
“It’s my pleasure to serve you always,” she said as she handed him his water.
“Of course,” he said. “I’m glad that I can take a little money from Chick-fil-A and maybe less money to hate groups.”
Addictions are always ugly to see.
What starts the virtue junkie addiction, I wonder? Is it something small or something big? I’ve thought for a long time these people were trying to compensate for something they did, like the guy driving a fancy Corvette who has a small dick, they did something awful. Perhaps something in childhood that only seems to be dark, terrible and nasty to a child…like they had their first shot of impulse from what matures into their conscience, and it doesn’t start this growing process quite properly.
Well, the end results are obviously quite ugly. The deeds themselves, from harassing honest and hard-working employees who are just trying to make a living, to passing city codes telling restaurants what sizes of soda they’re allowed to sell, aren’t really the problem — it’s the lack of awareness of something wrong with the cunning plan, or something potentially wrong. This misconception that, if the intentions are honorable, there can be no blemish in the results.
That leads to the very worst of the whole lot. Even the Great Society legislation is caused by this.
Guy’s got some growing up to do, but I’m not sure he’s capable. Also, he used the word “totally“. Blegh.
