Jon Swift

There was a guy around 1600 AD who liked to poke important and influential people, he used essays and novels to make himself dangerous to authority. His literary efforts were of superior quality and have influenced writings to this day, Jonathan Swift was a prelate, writer, and an advocate for the plight of the Irish people, also sufficiently obnoxious to be in danger of having his ears slit for insulting the monarchy - slander. Imagine my surprise to find him reincarnated and serving the Internet. He's shortened his name, Jon Swift , but his wit is as dangerous as it ever was.

If you get along with satire, you'll like him. He also is a proponent of "liberal blog rolling," in that if you let him know and link him, he will link you. For those of you unfamiliar with the world of blog publishing, your links are your rating in pecking order. I'm seriously unconcerned about that part of it, but I provided a link because I believe my readers will enjoy him. Be careful there, here's his profile:

"I am a reasonable conservative who likes to write about politics and culture. Since the media is biased I get all my news from Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and Jay Leno monologues."

Nothing can replace the original, but in the Blogworld he does pretty darn good. I eschew it myself, requires more talent than I have.
