As promised, here’s a look around what my colleagues, cohorts, and fellow unindicted co-conspirators have been writing about that caught my attention. A lot of them have been writing about some really good issues and using their blogs for advocacy – one of the things blogs do best.
Steve at The Yellow Doggerel Democrat has been writing a series on the seige of the Sierra Club. Read up and take note. edwardpig is on the trail of the elusive accountable voting machines. Trish is reminding us about Marcus Wesson and reminding us that killing nine of your own children isn’t something to be forgotten so quickly. And Then…there’s the story of a teacher held hostage by No Child Left Behind and one anonymous city’s way of dealing with it. Pen-Elayne continues her postings on Women’s History Month by addressing health and addiction. Great work, Elayne, and you may save a life. Houston at Dancing with Myself on the Scalia-Cheney recusal issue. Goldberg and Guthrie on the Illinois Senate race. Sounds like the Republicans have got themselves a very interesting – if not kinky – candidate. Well, if Arnold was good enough… South of the Suwanee – a blog by a fellow Floridian – takes note of why some Cubans in Miami take the issue of US/Cuban relations so personally: it’s all in the family, including the congressman from my district. That would explain a lot. Liz at Life as a Spectator Sport harks back to her days as a newspaper columnist to welcome a new blog, PressThink, by Jay Rosen.
