Look like he's gunning for the title petulant gerbil of the Apocalypse.

For some reason I thought he was a young person, no more than college age. I wonder why.

He certainly seems callow enough to be an undergrad. One can only surmise that economics PhDs get laid even less often than engineers.

I love this quote from his blog: "At the same time, as Julia Child once said, to make an omelette you have to break some eggs".

The context is discussing attending "peace" rallies organized by the ANSWER thugs. Unfortunately it wasn't Julia Child at all, but Robespierre at the outset of the Reign of Terror.

How apropos.

And I'd be blogging up a storm about this, if Blogger hadn't been down all evening.

Max is a living demonstration of why the Left is in decline: no sense of humor. He reminds me of an old courtroom story:

A young attorney is expounding the law before a panel of judges, and seems prepared to go on forever, when the senior judge bids him halt and says, "Young man, you have broken the Fifth Rule. You have taken yourself too seriously."

The crestfallen lawyer turned and makes for his seat, then halts, turns back toward the bench and says, "Your Honor, what are the other rules?"

The senior judge smiled benignly and replied, "There are no other rules."

He gave me two L's in my name.

He has ceased to exist.

Blogger's back, and as threatened I've written about this at some length.

Good thing, since Max has apparently banned my IP, putting me in such excellent company as the estimable Dr. Weevil.

To the female blogroach who was whinging on here a couple of weeks ago: note that I'm not changing my IP and going back to Max's place, though I easily could.

"Petulant Gerbil of the Apocalypse"?

I thought that was Hesiod.

I think Hesiod is more of a rat, personally.

Got email from Max claiming that he hadn't banned my IP after all. Could be, though I was definitely getting "connection refused" messages.
