I like to explain why I add each blog to my sidebar, so let me say a bit about why I check out Verbose Stoic.
For one, he's a thoughtful guy. Probably more "moderate" than yours truly, both in general inclination as well as tone. I have my moments of snarling and ranting - VS tends to always stay cool and calm. He's dialed into gaming issues, and he keeps tabs on the Cult of Gnu (primarily Myers and the Atheist+ sorts), complete with interesting commentary. Commentary that I typically find interesting and valuable, particularly when he talks about (imagine this) stoic outlooks, particularly Christian stoicism, though he tends to be more theologically quiet.
