Hmm.. tone can be obscured and a problem with these posts: try reading my post while smiling and you'll see it's not cutting. You read in seriousness that is not there, and I don't believe John is endorsing the actions of Sade, where do you get that from? A nod means a reference in my use. Why would I ask if John's read Sade if I already think he endorses his philosophy?
(I'm not offended or asking it to be taken down for goodness sake), but called it questionable. Here's why:
I have read Sade and besides the philosophical ‘contributions’ of the man (I would tell you what he did and thought he was accomplishing, but this post would be taken down), which I don’t find comparable to Jason, I find the connection – the pun – a facile one, and therefore a poor choice. This is constructive criticism for John. What’s the connection besides the name Marquis? I’m guessing John picked this because of Sade’s infamy and likened that to Jason but this is not at all clear. I see the connection as half a wink too cute. But if the connection is meant to be stronger than just the name, I don't find it deserved. I find that a little ridiculous and it gives me a chuckle (see my headline below). That's all
