Are you, or are you not, dying to know who this is?
Your Radical is somewhat late to the party, but honored nonetheless, since I became aware of this blog after having been "friended" (not to be confused with the more familiar "befriended") by the pseudonymous blogger, Ambrose Hofstadter Bierce III, on Facebook. Of course, I accepted the proffer of friendship. Who wouldn't?
But here is the question that many of us are asking. Do I know Mr. Bierce? Not sure. American history is a small, small world. Evidence suggests that either we have friends in common, or he is (purely by accident) phishing for Facebook friends among people I know.
Or he was hoping for a plug on Tenured Radical. Well, you got it, baby.
Your game is a dangerous one, Mr. Bierce, even though initial reports suggest that you are adding spice to our otherwise dull little lives. Let me know if Princeton is considering a preemptive strike to woo me to Tiger Town as part of the campaign to add heft and wit to the American wing there.
