One of the best blogs I have had the privilege to find in recent times is that of Jayrod Garrett: outcast, teacher, writer. Jayrod writes about issues that matter to him with eloquence and he’s not afraid of potential controversy (on that score, he says the kinds of things I wish I had the guts to say). When he completes his major work in progress and presents it to the world, I have little doubt it will be compelling. In the mean time, this man has much to teach the world through his blog posts. As a military man, he’s seen it all.
Anyway, I’m terrified of talking people up – 1. Because you might disagree with me and judge me poorly because you feel I put you wrong, and 2. Because I might be putting pressure on this fellow to perform! But I’m doing it, anyway.
Also, if you don’t like what he has to say, each week he points you in the direction of several other blogs with his weekly “Mashup”. Full Service. I like it.
