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...
Robert at Small Dead Animals has to ask:
In last night’s Reader Tips, SDA regular ‘ET’ asked some important questions:
You know, I had thought that the MSM wouldn’t attack Michele Bachmann as they attacked Sarah Palin. Because, I thought that Bachmann was ‘in the Washington bubble’ while Palin was outside it. I was wrong.
They are viciously attacking her. So it’s not the Washington bubble that protects you from the MSM. Is it because she’s a woman? But they didn’t pillory Hillary Clinton that way. So – what’s the reason?
Is it because she’s a conservative? And the MSM are not a free press but a propaganda site for the left – both in the US and Canada?
No, it doesn’t have anything to do with a “Washington bubble.” And my fellow Palin fans will be distressed to learn of my doubts that it has too much to do with the uppity female’s perceived ability to win a race. In other words, if you can find me a conservative female who’s not a threat, one who’s a complete non-starter, I think she’ll be on the receiving end as well. I also have doubts that it’s all liberals who are dishing this stuff out.
I think what you’re looking at is socially awkward men, who have spent a whole lot of their lives thinking of themselves as not-socially-awkward. They’ve learned to relate to women on an extraordinarily narrow communication path. Use the word “totally” a whole lot, leave the toilet seat down or at least talk about leaving the toilet seat down, say “women’s right to choose” a few times and she’ll jump into your bed. Hey, it worked before…
You’re seeing the distress that comes with the sudden realization that women are people, and people are complex. That’s why the most acrid vitriol comes from comedians; their livelihood is fastened inflexibly to their ability to relate to people, and they’re just starting to discover, when all’s said and done, that they suck at it.
All Women Don’t Have The Same Values. That can be a scary thought, to those who think they know all there is to know about women, because there wasn’t too much to learn in the first place. Their perception of the fairer sex is being knocked around a bit — and it’s a perception that hasn’t had to deal with any disturbances, any tremors or reverberations, since age fifteen.
