About me

I'm Brendan Loy, a 26-year-old graduate of USC and Notre Dame now living and working in Knoxville, Tennessee. My wife Becky and I are brand-new parents of a beautiful baby girl, born on New Year's Eve.

I'm a big-time sports fan, a politics, media & law junkie, an astronomy buff, a weather nerd, an Apple aficionado, a Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter fanatic, and an all-around dork. My blog is best-known for its coverage of Hurricane Katrina, but I blog about anything and everything that interests me.

Robot Dhimmitude Watch

Glenn Reynolds's hyperactive sense of political correctness is blinding him to the threat robots pose!

For God's sake, Glenn, think of the Insta-Mom!! When they grab her with those metal claws, she won't be able to break free, because they’re made of metal, and robots are strong.

Regular readers will, of course, recognize this joke from the approximately 846 other times I've made it on the blog. :) But I couldn't resist posting it again, if only for my own amusement (that clip never gets old, as far as I'm concerned) and perhaps the amusement of a few of my new readers today via Sullivan, Orr and Suellentrop. (Almost 10,000 hits today! Woo!)

Anyway, here's a higher quality clip of the SNL ad, if anyone's interested.



Arriving here from the happy environs of Instapundit, we are displeased at the impertinence of the author of this very modest place. The person misconstrues our kind condescension in choosing to tarry here as an invitation to familiarity. What could possibly be more cringeffective than such "incursions insinuantes?

If we were dealing with a person who was sensitive to the appropriate tone and the social realities, we might deign a glance of appraisal - might advise on the less than perfectly harmonious interplay of colors, the faulty juxtapositions of narrative mood. After all, one of the obligations placed upon our selves is the cultural improvement of our lessers. But one is disinclined to cast pearls before upstarts. No, indeed, we withdraw.

There are places where the elevated patronage of vaunted habitues of Instapundit is sufficiently recognized and observed. At such a place you may attend me.

Sorry, Neil, cannot open the pod bay doors:)
