A Mod Issues a (long) bleg: Listen to the Rantbrug Fred, cause we be read,
and ye shall hear of the midnight posts of Rantburg Fred.
On the eleventh of September, in two thousand one, our country bled.
He said to his friends,
The enemy has struck.
No time for a lantern to be hung.
They came neither by land or by sea.
They came by air.
So through these years rode our Rantburg Fred...
For, borne on the night-wind of the Past,
Through all our history, to the last,
In the hour of darkness and peril and need,
The people will waken and listen to hear
The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed,
And the midnight message of Rantburg Fred.
(My most sincere apologies to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)
Fred's Rantburg has awakened and listens to the midnight message of Rantburg Fred.
|Yes, apologies are necessary. But a noble effort indeed -- I wouldn't have dared it. :-)|
You know of his "depth of history, his knowledge of our wars." You know of his "lovely ladies" and you know of his inline humor.....
You know of this place, and just in case you didn't know of its history? Now you do.
The bleg begins.....
Site meter today tells us that on this day March 8th, for this week, there have already been over 54,000 views!
Average visit? 6 minutes 29 seconds.
A choice for lunch --
Subway Club Salad with drink -- $6.34.
Campbell's can of microwaved Chicken Noodle Soup -- $1.48.
Hum..... about a 5 bucks difference.
That 5 bucks would pay for lots of page views....
So -- Scroll down to the Brietbart is Here graphic -- Why?
Be Brietbart ----
Below his graphic? Click the DONATE button -- all it takes is giving up that Subway sandwich/salad for the day and heat that can of Chicken Noodle Soup in the microwave.
And, oh yea? I can "feel" that smile inside of you, for clicking on that button! You owe it to yourself......
