Email of the Week

George Jong emails:

I have to admit, I get a little freaked out by the fact that you keep appearing in the comments of all the blogs I read - Kevin Drum, Jeff Jarvis, Roger Simon, etc. It's like pulling over to three different rest stops and finding the same biker standing at the urinal next to you each time.

Then I read Welch's post about DSL, and I find not only you, but also Boomshock and Lileks. What the heck is going on here?
A biker? Me?

You make me laugh, George. But I hit Welch's comments first. Maybe I should ask you what's up...

Maybe it's the goatee?

Careful. I have photos of you in leather chaps at Simon's reading. I'm not above posting them. If I had a tip jar you'd have to hit it.

Maybe he's the Lone Biker of the Ablogalypse.

All I know is, Michael, I'm two full time zones ahead of you, so I don't know what you're doing following me around. Still, I'm ok with it, just as long as I don't catch you lobbing grenades at bunnies. That's crossing the line.

Yeah, slow work day.
