my fans in the forces of darkness

It seems I have AGAIN had the privilege of gracing the pages of another forces of darkness blog! Two in one week! Wow. Peter Rempel must be a trend-setter.

This time, it happens to be on the nicely designed RootleWeb blog, run by a Blogger known only as Ruth.

It appears that Ms. Ruth has taken exception with my fourth criterion of selecting "le blog of the week." In a recent posting about the tolerance level of "lefties," Ms. Ruth wrote:

"Now consider
Daveberta's criteria for his blog of the week:
1. Smart
2. Entertaining
3. Informative
4. Not crazy right-wing.
Why the need to add the last criterion? If everyone is entitled to their opinion and we must be tolerant of all, then why not select a blog that is smart, entertaining, informative and also crazy right wing. The combination does exist. Captain's Quarters is a perfect example."

First, I would like to thank Ms. Ruth for her post.

Second, I agree that everyone is entitled to their opinion (no matter how crazy that opinion may be).

Third, I would like to point out that I have not excluded all right-wing blogs, only those which I consider "crazy-right wing." So, there still is potential for 2 or 3 of the hundred or so blogging forces of darkness to make "le blog of the week."

Congrats!

The government of Holtopia will insist on maintaining its policy of putting those who fall too far into the "crazy right wing" or the "crazy left wing" or the "rocking out to Yanni" categories... into the wicker mines! The wicker mines have been described by Amnesty as "mildly uncomfortable" and "populated by weirdos."

Dave:

What if you went through the Blogging Tories and categorized them in terms of CRW (Crazy Right-Wing) and RW (Right wing)?

Don't do it.

:P

Aaron: I think that by doing that I would have to endure the rather of the bloggering tories. :P
