"Neither Predator Nor Prey"

I also read Bill Whittle's essay with the sheep/sheepdog metaphor, and for the most part, I agree with it. But after some reflection, I came to conclusion that there must be a lot of people, like myself, who don't fit the metaphor.

That's why I would like to recommend that you read Neither Predator Nor Prey at Revolutionary War Veterans Association Weblog. It uses another metaphor that I think is more accurate for many of us.


  1. Tx for the link. Hope to see you in Mingus on 10/29-30:

  2. Sorry, I'm no fan of the sheepdog analogy, either, and maybe it's the Homer Simpson in me, but I see a buffalo bull and think buffalo burgers.

    Mmmmm, buffalo burgers...

  3. When you mention the Simpsons and buffalo, the thing I think of is the line, "It must be some sort of land cow."

    I'm beginning to think maybe a werewolf analogy would be better. I might have to write that up.
