So, what’d I miss?
After two weeks away basking in the tropical sun a couple of islands away from where our country’s Kenyan usurper’s overlords faked his birth, I am just now doing a quick review of all that I’ve missed here. Boy, did I pick the wrong time to be away, League-wise!
After the most cursory of reviews, I realized I have missed a couple of excellent posts by Ryan B (including some F&I spoilers I wished I had not been tempted by) and his transformation into Ryan Bonneville, a guest post about one of my favorite TV shows The Wire by one of my favorite commenters Anderson, Tom Van D’s much anticipated (by me anyway) entry into the sub-blogs, a great song video by Elvis Perkins, a cool post by Elias about our memory of how we reacted to MLK vs. the reality of the same, Jason’s nod to Michael Shermer about how we think our political -isms are rational even when they’re not (which allows me to view my pragmatic rejection of –isms as highly rational while at the same time having them proved to be irrational which makes me feel rationally justified, which makes my brain hurt), plus a sub-blog announcement from Burt about his 2012 intentions that means I have to find another candidate to back in 2012, and from Patrick musical glasses AND a post whose contents I correctly guessed after reading its two word title (For Bob).
And of course, continued agreement by everyone on the internet that – by using his Satanic powers to try to find common ground and decency in others – E.D. is Evil Incarnate. Seriously, Erik is the Tyrion of the intertubes. (Also, I guess he’s now an otter?)
