Another incoming link, this time from dustbury.com (The Web Site Formerly Known As Chez Chaz). The occasion: his commentary on Saint Paul's advice.

I was unfamiliar with dustbury.com, not to mention Dustbury, Oklahoma, but I bookmarked the site immediately as it looks like a keeper. Noteworthy: a FAQ page that rivals Episode 17 of Ulysses in its catechetical exhaustiveness.

Also noteworthy: a post giving qualified approval to a proposal by S. Y. Affolee to use the Dewey Decimal System to classify blogs for archival purposes. I'm in favor of the basic idea, though I wonder whether the DDS would be the most appropriate classification system for such an endeavor; a system specifically tailored to blogs might be more useful. I also think the much more natural unit of classification would be the post, not the blog; witness the increasing number of blogs that provide topical access to their archives alongside the more traditional date-based method.

One last noteworthy: the display of dustbury's Political Compass scores about midway down on the left column. Here are mine:
Economic Left/Right: 5.62
Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.95
In other words, I'm slightly to the west and south of Milton Friedman (and a long way due east of Dustbury, OK; Asheville, NC, let's say).

Well, what are you waiting for?
