This is the title of a typical incendiary blog post

This sentence contains a provocative statement that attracts the readers’ attention,
but really only has very little to do with the topic of the blog post. This sentence claims to follow logically from the first sentence, though the connection is actually rather tenuous. This sentence claims that very few people are willing to admit the obvious inference of the last two sentences, with an implication that the reader is not one of those very few people. This sentence expresses the unwillingness of the writer to be silenced despite going against the popular wisdom. This sentence is a sort of drum roll, preparing the reader for the shocking truth to be contained in the next sentence.
This sentence contains the thesis of the blog post, a trite and obvious statement cast as a dazzling and controversial insight.....

Much more typical incendiary blather @ Coyote Crossing

Your Say


I was also impressed by this article at Coyote Crossing.

I even bought the author's book about his dog, Zeke, which I just received, and have not yet read.

It was therefore with chagrin that I read this post on his blog:


in which he avers his complete agreement with an author who describes the ideal climax of human history and civilization, as that moment when a coyote urinates on the skull of what had been the last living person.

That sentiment perfectly typifies the hysterical, self-hating, choking, insane delerium of the left.

It is a pity to see such a pellucid literary talent perverted by a values system that can only be described as vile.
