If you're one of the four people who read this page on a regular basis, you might have noticed that my blogroll has changed.
Well, let's not kid ourselves. You would never have noticed that, but I just told you, so we can move forward from there, yes? Yes.
It's interesting. I haven't been back to David Codrea's page much since being lectured on my cowardice. Apparently, it's cowardly to assume that your political opponents love their own children and have good intentions. My political opponents, according to this school of thought, are villains in jackboots, twirling their oily black handlebar mustaches with glee at the thought of destroying freedom and replacing good old-fashioned American love and kindness with hatred and filth. The only catch, of course, is that this is all delusional nonsense. In the real world, your political enemies think they're saving you from yourself. While you're trying to explain why their grandiose plans won't work, they're too busy imagining how you will grovel and apologize when you realize how close you came to ruining everything by not listening to them in the first place. In short, David Codrea and I still agree on a lot of things, but I don't read him much anymore, so I'm making room in the blogroll.
