Friday Blogaround, Part I

Ah, the weekend…take a moment to see what my cohorts and others are writing about.

  • Welcome Left OverAnger to the blogroll: “This blog contains the research, opinions, thoughts and occasional rantings of a proudly Liberal gay man who can no longer bear the propaganda and oppression of an increasingly Right-Wing America.” There’s a lot of that going around.
  • Steve at the Yellow Doggerel is hot to see Fahrenheit 9/11, as is Natalie at All Facts and Opinions.
  • WTV Is It Now?? has the lowdown on news that John Ashcroft may have perjured himself when he testified before the 9/11 Commission. (Maybe that’s what Vice President Cheney meant to say to Sen. Leahy: “Go perjure yourself.”)
  • Help Scout with a new internet art project.
  • Count Wanda in on the popcorn for F-9/11. I’m really looking forward to reading her review.
  • archy wonders why Eric Robert Rudolph – the accused Olympic Park and abortion clinic bomber – isn’t called a “terrorist.” I wonder if it has something to do with the fact that he looks a lot like the kid who takes your order at Dairy Queen?
  • Trish Wilson has the goods on the divorce of Jeri and Jack Ryan, the former Star Trek: Voyager actor and the as-of-today former candidate for the Senate from Illinois.
  • BlogAmY asks your support for the loggerhead turtles.
  • T. Rex updates his list of American soldiers who have been killed in Iraq.
  • bloggg is the cat’s meow.
  • Steve Gilliard cites Kos’s story about Nader talking to the GOP in Oregon. That’s pathetic. (I mean Nader, not Steve.)
  • Chris gazes into the future. (Does that mean he has crystal balls?)
  • Jeff notes that bin-Laden contacted damn near everybody to try to find an ally back in the 1990’s. The point is, though, did anyone ever call him back?
  • Collective Sigh has a story about the proposed lottery for health care. So, if your number doesn’t come up, your number’s up?
  • All I can say about this story from SoonerThought is that is answers the question as to what some judges wear (and do) under those black robes. And, may I add, “Yuck!”
  • Corrente has the lead to a story on the AP’s suit to release Bush’s military records.
  • upyernoz at Rubber Hose made some plum ice cream (yummy!), and as he did so he contemplated the reasons for why he’s getting all this spam in Russian. I’d love to know that, too – I get four or five of them a day, and the only Russian I’ve ever studied is Konstantin Stanislavski.
  • Okay, end of Round One – I’m taking a half-day off from work and I need to get to Home Depot before it gets crowded. I promise I’ll get to the rest of the Blogaround in the morning. Happy Friday!
