Agent Genius Brings it To Bloodhound – Shock & Awe, Baby

shockandawe.jpg

I wasn’t aware that Agent Genius had surrounded Bloodhound on two sides with verbal war ships and began shelling the heart of BHB with Bunker Busters. I also wasn’t aware that we had marched into Greg Swann’s living room to find Greg deep inside a spider hole eating twinkies and reciting poetry. To be honest, I watch FOX News almost constantly and had never heard a word of the massive air strikes we delivered to the towns of Kris Berg, or Jeff Brown in the Geno Triangle of Death.

Like I said, this is all news to me- I bring this up because over the past several weeks, I’ve actually had several folks ask me if this was our mission, rooting me on for their own reasons, some warning me of Greg Hussein’s Viral WMD (words of mass distraction), and I sincerely wanted to set the record straight.

For the record, although Greg and I could never agree on everything, my respect for Greg is beyond that of most men. Greg came to my family’s rescue recently as if my family was his own, and I’ve seen his compassion on many other levels since the beginning of Bloodhound. A war on Bloodhound could not be further from the mission or aim of Agent Genius- Greg is safe with his twinkies and his spider hole really isn’t a spider hole, that’s just Greg buried under mountains of books and cords from the countless tech toys Greg owns.

I really enjoy reading Bloodhound as I enjoy reading geekestateblog, Jay Thompson, and even Inman sometimes. I enjoy many blogs around the internet; I just really happen to love reading those that contribute at Agent Genius. Their contributions to the blogiverse have been many and I’m honored to feature them here. So, I am sorry you’re not getting to see us bring Greg up on sanctions, but you will see us continue to elevate the conversation from different perspectives.

    I don’t have anything to add. I just like doing the math required to post a comment here. It’s like a little self-test to keep me sharp.

    (Funny post.)

    Kris, if we are nothing else, we are entertaining, and there’s always the math.

    I think someone once said, “Variety is the spice of life”.

    You assembled a cadre of fine writers and thinkers here. Ditto for BHB. There’s plenty of room in the blogiverse (it’s expanding you know, and infinite) for everyone.

    If the CIA doesn’t have active intel on Swann, I bet the NAR does 🙂
