OMT One Man's Trash...from Norman Leahy

Bark at the Moon

In the hands of lesser men, idle time is usually wasted time. In the case of Will Vehrs, however, it's an odyssey, an education, and an opportunity for some of the most honest and reflective writing we shall ever see in the Virginia blogging world. Some would be well advised to read his posts carefully and consider whether hit counts and page views alone make for an influential blog.

Of course, Will has also become a foil for Ray McAllister and grist for the TD's copy mill (Tyler Whitley has nothing better to do these days, eh?). I wish Will's other writings over the years had earned the same level of attention. But they probably don't pass the good copy test.

More's the pity.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
