QUOTABLES

"I have been monitoring your blog carefully, and I am beginning to suspect that you do not fully support our carnivorous foreign policy of tearing out the throats of other nations to feast on their flesh and suck out the juicy oil within. That you may have some sneaking sympathy for the passive vegetarian role of pacifism, sweetness and light.

I suspect that you are a sheep in sheep's clothing."
-EvilPundit [submitted by TimT]




NOTES

A "?" by an item denotes speculation/unverified.

Thanks to TimT for the inadvertently inspiring me to use "dhinger" in place of
"pro-war". (If you don't know what a "dhinger" is, why are you reading this?? :-)

Name
in brackets after a data point denotes contributor of data. No name
means I knew it from memory offhand, myself. [dustin]

Wow, I'm a "quotable"! I'm flattered. Thanks, TimT.

I'm also some of the "Anonymous's" and a minor character in the IWW universe -- Michle Haris aka Stileto. He is too stupid to spell his own name correctly, and is currently in a state of blog-induced panic. In his disguise of black ski-mask and trenchcoat, he has fled the Bushnazis in Ottawa and is making his way across the continent to seek refuge with his Aunt Sally, who works as a nuclear weapons designer in Los Alamos.

By the way, I have a suggestion about the blog structure. If the Master Post gets too big, you could split parts of it off into sub-posts, with links from the main one. I'd love to help with the blog, but I'm just not reliable enough.
