A quote from the movie "Patton" (1970), a commentary on particular elements of the blogosphere.



Cartright: "General, I just want to make a report on a private poll I've been taking."

Patton: "Mmm? What poll?"

Cartright: "The fan mail: 11% con 89% pro. And that 11% of protest in most cases is both obscene and anonymous, but the pro letters are mostly from relatives and servicemen."

that's really funny...
I guess I count as a "serviceman" even though I'm not at divinity school

I think this post is really f#@*ing stupid.

There is quite possibly nothing more absolutely wonderful in this world than John Camp. I feel that you are making some really good choices (?) concerning the direction, tone and content. It strikes a balance between quirky humor and deep intellectual thought. It is truly worth reading when I know I should be tending to my responsibilities which I am desperately trying to avoid.

Here's a quiz (distant cousin of the poll) to show us just who we are, theologically speaking. Sorry to all the tertius usus legis antagonists out there in blogland, because I'm not sure there are any "You're a Luthapalian" options. Nevertheless, it is loads of fun just to see how close one is to being a Fundie. (John, you really need to team up with PZ to design some cool quizzes for the TESM-ites.)
