what people are saying about all-encompassingly

i went through our comment history this weekend and looked for remarks hurling insults or praise in our direction, and i found quite a few. we've had some great discussion on the blog in our first 16 months. if you want to see what inspired a particular spewage of hate or love, just click on the comment to go to the post that inspired it. all of the comments are real. where remarks came in an email, there is no link. now, without further ado, here's what people have to say about our blog, all-encompassingly:

"9 times out of 10 gives me a good laugh." --Ashley, Mother of Three

"Made me into the man I am today" --The Captain[link]

Well Travis. This is a fine bit o' work you've been up to. I rarely visit but hey, I'm on a mission for God (like the Blues Brothers but not really at all actually). So here it is...
+ feedback. You are one philoshopical know-it-all. That is good unless you can hear a sarcastic tone in my keyboard strokes. But that is for you and the others who read this jibberish to listen for. :D YEAH SMILEY At least people aren't sending you anthrax in the mail... yet.
Ok i'm done.

elder griggs,

it is good to hear from you. i would tell you to get back to the holy work, but i believe visiting all-encompassingly is a sacred act, as well.

btw, is the mailing address on aspen.mine.nu current? i have a special package to send you.

Fantastic commentary. Your work may help save this country from the ever more pathetic left.
