Here's a recent post near the top of the Google search for Rod Dreher by a serious boat captain guy named David Ryan. We'll do our part here to help keep it near the top. He has titled the post simply Rod Dreher needs to shut up.
He quotes Rod's musings about how he seems to be so distracted and has to blog about everything. My initial reaction to reading the first quote was thinking that there's a pretty fine line between laziness and lack of discipline; it's a distinction without much of a difference. Trust me; I know about all forms of laziness and lack of focus first-hand.
Here's Ryan's conclusion:
Rod, with as much love and charity as I can muster: You’ve identified the problem. Now stop talking and start doing.
No more trips to Paris. No more sportfishing. No more blogging. Travelocity now. Iona. Monastery.
All I can add to this is "Aye, Captain."
