The Bewildered Herd
"The public must be put in its place, so that each of us may live free of the trampling and
roar of a bewildered herd."

This Time, They're Right

OK, it's a spoof, but I for one would love to see the lying mainstream propaganda magazine really tell the truth for a change.

Hi Jay. I found you through your NaNoWriMo blog. I'm attempting it this year too, although it has come at a bad time and I have less that 2,000 words - oh dear!

I really love this site. I have linked on my blog ( to your post about IQs and the way certain states voted. I have also added you to my blogroll.

I have had a look at your family blog too. I had a huge smile on my face when I saw your children's surname - what a fantastic idea. When my husband and I got married I didn't want to lose my name, so we have both become Burton-Cartlegde. A bit of a mouthful, but we had a giggle last night when we did what you have done: Burtledge or Carton just don't sound right do they?!

There is a blog over here in the UK you might find interesting: is written by Lynn, about all sorts of things, but also about her struggle to get health professionals to officially diagnose her son as autistic. I am sure she would love to hear from you. Her son is older than Porter, but she struggles daily to simply have people realise he is not just 'difficult' etc.

Anyway, keep doing what you are doing, and I'd love to have you check out my blog if you fancy it.

Take care
