Well, I'm trying something new--I'm posting before I read what everybody else wrote while I was working and sleeping. This means
a) I'm out of the loop
b) I'll be linking to yesterday's hot topics
Of course, I may accidently stumble upon something current while seeking the links to yesterday, but so be it...
I understand what some on the left are doing. They want to do right thing by respecting others territory and livelihood, the want to be nice and not offend. I agree wholeheartedly with the basic sentiment. But the scenario does not permit this. Some on the left opposed the war in Iraq because of humanitarian reasons. Basically, they were worried, afraid and angered and what could happen to the innocent Iraqis caught in the crossfire in a war between the US and Saddam Hussein. Because conservatives supported the war so much that can only mean that we are heartless people who could care less about a few thousand dead foreigners. And since we are heartless, we can’t possibly be fighting the war to liberate the Iraqis, we have to have other motives. Taunts of “imperialism” and “no blood for oil” became chants.Go read the rest. It's choice.
If I'm going to keep doing this FOR YOU, I want a few things in return. I want more comments. A lot more. I want comments and e-mails. I want some recognition, damnit! I want more links! I want more love and appreciation, more acknowledgement. Did I spell that right? See how hard this is? I have to actually spell things correctly!!! I'm working here, people! See? You spell acknowledgement twice. TWICE!! And if I spelled it wrong, that just proves my point. I think.
Bill, here's how it works: I used to link to you a lot. I commented a lot. I even asked quite a few "dear Scabby" questions. But did you return the love? No. You were too obsessed with Michele and your Lileks man-love to pay me any attention. So eventually my unrequited affection simply burned itself out, and I started stalking Paul instead. It's your own fault, ya ingrate!

He's also developed a new Blogger's Award for Humanitarianism in the Blogosphere.
