Friday Blogaround

It’s been a strange week here in Blogistan, what with several well-known bloggers abruptly going on hiatus or just plain calling it quits, and the flood of news coverage on Reagan’s funeral blocking out most of the other news. But still things seem to go forward, and I’ll give you a brief glimpse of some of the things other than the obvious that have been turned into this dance of electrons.

First, welcome some new faces to the BBWW blogroll, including Discourse.net from Michael Froomkin right here in South Florida – he’s a professor at the University of Miami School of Law (right across Miller Drive from my old haunt, the Ring Theatre). Also spacecoastweb: blog chimes in from up the coast, and Nosey Online provides “an overload of information.” Check them out.

As for what’s out there…

  • NTodd on smart dogs.
  • Pen-Elayne joins me and several other TLC bloggers (including archy and Happy Furry in mourning the passing of Ray Charles.
  • Michael awaits the concert by the Supremes.
  • archy looks at the evolution of real (as opposed to cartoon) insect life.
  • Wanda cites another story on Kerry’s bump up in the polls.
  • Steve on challenging the USA PATRIOT Act.
  • Carl at Unpopular Ideas looks at Martha Stewart’s chances for a new trial.
  • That’s it for now. And a reminder – I’m participating in the Hemingway conference in Key West this weekend, and I don’t know if my hotel has internet access. So, if you don’t see me after lunch, I’ll be back on Sunday. Meanwhile, Happy Friday!
