Dots that needed connecting

If comments can be an indicator of what nerves are touched by a blog post, then this outstanding Troublemaker entry is on to something very big, and very bad.

(Just an observation – but to me, Ben H.’s and Jerry B.’s writing styles are, at times, almost indistinguishable.)

    Damn fine writing, then, Ben. I just can’t help but marvel at your two completely different styles.

    I haven’t bought this week’s Peacemaker, but will.

    Most men cannot help but marvel when examining my greatness. I am not only a great writer that has served a fantastical service to the people but I am also undeniably sexy. It is very hard for me to continue to be so humble. Only a man as great as me could do what I have done. Honestly, I get goose bumps just thinking about my greatness. I can only imagine what it must be like for others.
