Catching up on reading/Open Post
[Yeh, Macstansbury caught me out in an inexcusable (and baffling) typo. Thanks, Mac... :-) ]
Wednesday is OTA Day! Link here and post a, well, how did Is It Just Me? put it? Oh, yeh,
These came in later yesterday but are still worth reading:
My Blog is Not Blogging Outloud "Me wanted to recruit . . . them horse tooth paste of which it is possible to clean foot-wear." That's what you get when you go to Blogging Outloud instead of Bloggin' Outloud. Choose the real cola.
Yeh, he has a point, but I stopped drinking Pepsi products when their CEO made an ass of herself... ;-)
Another, uhm, pointed commentary by Bergbikr at TMH's Bacon Bits:

Some good points...
BIG DOG's WEBLOG grabs Jean Fraud sKerry by the throat and shakes his sorry... uhm, body a bit
Another Week And No 180 Another week has passed and John Kerry has failed to live up to his promise to sign an SF 180 that is completely unrestricted so that his military records can be released in their entirety. You will remember that big John promised to do this on national TV...
Now, as to catching up on my reading...
Had a nice lil blurb about Lars Walker's "The Year of the Warrior" here, but Zoundry's Blogwriter totally hashed that post, so I'll just say: worth a read. Events surrounding Olaf of Norway's attempt to subjugate all of Norway and bring Christianity to the heathen with an iron fist. (Yeh, he didn't quite get the concept.)
My 12 (or is it 13?) year old nephew had me picking Aeschylus and Sophocles up again a short while ago. By the time I caught up with him, he was already at Oedipus at Colonus. It's a good idea, I've found, to go back and read the sources of some of our cultural memes every now and then. Thanks, T.F., for the impetus.
Words from an adulterous murderer who found mercy... maybe there's hope for some of us, eh?
Hit me with your best shots, folks. ;-)
Brazenly advertized at Stuck on Stupid, woulda advertized at Don Surber After hours, but he apparently closed his Wednesday open post before I sat down here (love ya, Don :-), MacStansbury's, Right Wing Nation, Rempelia Prime, Choose Life!'s "Cowering Chicken" post, TMH's Bacon Bits (I'll hit you with another one later, bud :-) and Diane's Stuff and elsewhere, when posts go up.
