Was checking out Matthew Stover's blog today and followed the link he posted. Regardless of your political stance and feelings, it's kind of funny to read. Scroll ALL the way down to reply #87. Stover gets into a e-fight with some posters. Mildly humorous Laughing

I have to admit, Matt came over as an obnoxious troll on there. "Daveland"? I expected a well formed argument without mocking from him. I would go into my political views and new thoughts on Stover, but I'm not sure that would be appropriate as an admin.

I also had the impression that Stover was stirring up trouble, but I found it amusing. It's funny to see a New York Times best selling author getting into a blog fight. Those guys probably had no idea who he was either.

Very interesting, and humerous.

For me though the funniest post was #90 describing bi-partisan ship. Just created a real funny visual image for me, particularly for what a restaurant that served tire rims and anthrax would look like (I had an image of people in tuxedos/evening gowns attacking/eating garbage like zombies in a horror flick).

Anyway thanks for the laugh Skuldren!
