We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
A great blog post - as opposed to a "check this out" post - is succinct, non-rambling, fact-filled, gracefully-written, minimally self-referential, and pulls together disparate themes and unusual facts to shed fresh light on a subject, or to make a random subject interesting. That is to say, a great blog post is a good brief essay, ideally well-salted with links. When I post, I rarely have take the time that is required to be brief.
Within you parameters Mr. B that was indeed a well done post. The description of their weapons seems bleak for the isles "airguns, pocket knives, and their boots and hands" and is sad. Though I realize these hunters are making do with what they are allowed. Shows the primal energy the left attempts to erradicate. Well illustrated as well. I had the gentleman on my 'read every day' list, but that neo-counter thingy he has takes forever too load so I now just do an occasional visit. Nonetheless a fine writer with taste.
It is for a fact a new literary form. A link-rich essay, which somehow can be more loose (fun) than anything committed to the dread sanctity of pen & ink on paper. And someone to read it other than the English teacher, Miss Redink.
