Review of Sen. Reid’s new biography: “While most political biographies are so full of hot air and self-importance that they produce measurable greenhouse gases, at times Reid’s story feels like it was run through the typewriter of Erskine Caldwell.”

    The one I want to comment on is one you just put up, minutes past your cut-off for this post, linking to the Gently Hew Stone blog. Yikes! Why hasn’t anyone brought this to my attention before? It is fantastic!

    It’s going to be expensive to follow — I’ve already ordered seven books from Amazon after a few minutes’ reading, and it’s going to be expensive in time to catch up with the last few months’ entries — but worth every minute.

    This is commenter Huston’s blog. Is it on the aggregators? I’m adding it to Keepapitchinin’s blogroll this morning.

    I glanced at the Deseret News comments on the Richard Turley story on whether BY ordered the MMM. The comments seemed to follow this pattern:

    Yes he did.
    No he didn’t.
    Yes he did.
    No he didn’t and you’re a jerk.
    Yes he did and you’re a jerk too.
    And so forth.

    Makes me glad to have discovered T&S and the other places to discuss such things in a slightly more educated way.

    Yes, Researcher, the operative word in your final sentence is “slightly.”

  4. Kaimi on May 30, 2008 at 10:31 pm

    No it isn’t. (And you’re a dweeb.)

  5. Seth R. on May 30, 2008 at 10:35 pm

    Geez Kaimi,

    Just the sort of thing a TBM, morgbot, Peter-Priesthood, BYU Honor Code facist would say.

    Why don’t all you tools think for yourselves?

    Researcher, are you still going to stand by your “more educated way” comment? *grin*
