Close Personal Friends With the Duke! is a general-topics blog (or at least I think it is). You'll probably find a decent amount of sports talk here. You're unlikely to find any discussion of the Can-you-believe-those-clowns-in-Congress-type unless I'm making a Simpsons reference ("Don't. Praise. The machine.") Other topics may include music, TV, movies, the abstraction of naval and air combat in Totaler Krieg!, and Jane Austen.
