A lot of the gang at TLC et al is taking time off over the New Year’s holiday, but there are some of us who have maintained the vigil and are posting. Here’s a run-down on some, and sorry if I leave anybody out.

  • Steve at Yellow Doggerel Democrat has done a nice makeover, and he’s got a good posting on his goals for the year.

  • Stradiotto has fun with comics and almanacs.

  • Rubber Hose says 1/3 of the country thinks Bush should be impeached.

  • Guy at Rook’s Rant is in a match to the death with NTodd. I didn’t know that chess was a contact sport…

  • Pen-Elayne holds out some hope for the new year.

  • Scott at The Gamer’s Nook keeps the Plame blame game flame alive (sorry, I couldn’t resist).

  • Keith, our virtual librarian, weighs in on developments in sci-fi, including his thoughts on the new iteration of Battlestar Gallactica. He liked it more than I did; although I’m on board with him on the technical upgrades, I didn’t really get into the characters. After all, once you’ve seen Lorne Greene as Adama…

  • The Gotham City 13 has the Stars and their Resolutions comin’ at ya, f’shizzle.

  • edwardpig wonders, “Is it me, or is it hot in here?”

  • Charles2 has a post on why he’s not posting. Okay…

  • Tresy thinks Mother Nature doesn’t like Canada. Aw, c’mon, what’s not to like?

  • Speaking of Canada, Tao of Dowingba has strong words for the Dean campaign. Words like “raping dead soldiers.”

  • According to And Then… and the WaPo, we almost invaded the Middle East in 1973 to end the Arab oil embargo. Wow, thank Dog for Watergate.

  • SoonerThought has a story on how the Army is keeping soldiers from leaving the service. Not quite at gunpoint, but almost.

  • Trish has her picks to click in music for the New Year and the New Age.

  • “Everybody wants to get into the act.” So noted Jimmy Durante, and so notes andante at Collective Sigh: the vice president of Iran now has a blog. But will we be seeing any cats there?
  • Enjoy the New Year’s Day, and…go ‘Canes!
