It took some persistent recruiting to land him, but I think the JJV posts in question helped seal the deal. In response to my latest appeal for aid against the Sorcerer of Falls Church, he responded:
You have shown weakness in the face of his deliberate provocations, and so he has become emboldened. You are, in fact, a "Bombadil Blogmaster", happily skipping around picking flowers and singing songs while evil sidles up and pitches its tent in your garden. Your only option at this late date to deal with the menace, and to discourage his ilk, is to invade.
The Metro runs kind of slow on the weekends but perhaps I have no choice.
At any rate I look forward to seeing what our newest contributor brings to the table. Welcome aboard!
