Recommended Posts

I wanted to collect some of my favorite posts on the site in one place to serve as a best of and also as a starting point for new followers.  So, in no particular order, below are my favorite posts I’ve written.  If you have any recommendations, let me know!

Roger Williams and the “Refused to Learn the Local Language” Meme – My only Freshly Pressed post!  Roger Williams is one of my favorite historical figures, and I wanted to take the opportunity to write a little about him, educate people, and explain why he made a particularly poor subject for a meme I had seen going around.

Spartan Women – A debunking of a Tumblr post about Spartan women.  I found it riddled with inaccuracies, and I wanted to set the record straight.  Spartan women were sufficiently awesome that falsehoods aren’t needed.

I Used to Have a Lot of Friends – By far my best rated story.  It’s about the travails of a pious monk.
