New to the Blogroll

You know what’s delightful? Finding a new blog, or new to you blog, that’s so well written you just keep scrolling and scrolling.

We’re adding Stephen Browne’s Rants and Raves.

Interesting thoughts from a guy who’s lived all around the world and isn’t bad at telling you about it. I liked his Random Thoughts post too and will post an excerpt apropos of the Kevlarchick thing below:

And speaking of wisdom expressed in brief remarks, has anyone ever defined love better than Robert Heinlein? “Love is when another person’s happiness is essential to your own.” And the earthy, descriptive corollary, “Love is what goes on when you’re not horney.”

And Raymond Chandler on manhood; when a woman asks Phillip Marlow, “How can a man who is so tough be so gentle?”

“If I weren’t tough, I wouldn’t be alive. If I couldn’t be gentle, I wouldn’t deserve to be alive.”

I recently quoted this is a class, and I swear I heard sighing around the room from several women.
