Friday Blogaround

Today’s edition will be a little abbreviated due to the full day scheduled here at the William Inge Theatre Festival. But there are a couple of things you should check out.

First, as noted below, there’s a nasty worm going around that plays on the hopes of capturing OBL. Some of the TLC gang got the e-mail (I didn’t), allegedly from “Joan Lamb.” Stay away from it.

Musing’s musings is looking at the Mike Danton case; the story of the NHL hockey player who is alleged to have hired a hit man to kill a another man who is claiming to have been his lover.

The news outlets are all over the photos of coffins coming back from Iraq. This story was broken by The Memory Hole and picked up (of course) by the blogosphere including Dohiyi Mir and corrente. As they say in the trade, this gets you where you live.

Steve at The Yellow Doggerel Democrat celebrates the win by the Sierra Club to beat back the attempt by anti-immigrant lobbyists to take over the organization.

The Fulcrum has the story on Colorado’s attempt to head back down the road to perdition and ignominy yet again, barely ten years after the disasterous Amendment 2 tried to codify discrimination against gays and lesbians. What the hell has happened to Colorado? When I lived there it was very much a live-and-let-live state, but now the crazies (Focus on the Family and other spawn of Satan) have taken over places like Colorado Springs and they’re getting worse.

There’s a lot more out there on The Liberal Coalition, and you can preview it at correnteWire, the live feed service. Happy Friday!
