One of my better online chums is David Scott Anderson, of In Search Of Utopia. Politically, he’s an utter nincompoop, but once you get past that horrid defect, he’s a genuinely nice guy and a good writer. (Not to mention uncle to one of the scarier funny guys in Hollywood.)
Well, David is a bit more of a social butterfly than I am (I’ve described my social skills as “slightly less than those of a rabid, diarrhetic wombat”), and has loads more online friends than I do. And earlier today, I was pleased to see one of his buddies had achieved a rather remarkable level of renown. I immediately notified David and told him that he simply HAD to blog about it — it was a “moral imperative” was the exact phrasing I used.
He apparently agreed, but didn’t bother to give me any credit.
I won’t get too upset with this slight, though. I know he’s better than that. I’ll just chalk it up to his leftist leanings, and not take it personally.
