Mighty-fine blogging

John at AmericaBlog brings us a rumorish story of "Naval Aviators" being formed into a new ground unit for Iraq and sent on a hunt for those "Improvised Explosive Devices."

Via Andrew Tobias (you should read the whole post), I found this Garrison Keillor column that heaps praise on the discipline, responsibility, and maturity of those trained for the armed services. And regrets that fewer and fewer of our 'leaders' have actually undergone that experience.

Kevin at American Street pointed us toward Lewis Lapham's "The Case For Impeachment", reminding me that I have to find a copy of the March Harper's Magazine.

Matt, at ColoradoLib, is fast becoming one of my all-time favorite "local" bloggers. He's talking about the local stuff I should be paying attention to. This post is about the (Republican) Colorado House Minority Leader resigning under a cloud of serious ethical problems.

Avedon Carol said she didn't know what to name her post, but I'd have named it Failing to use their brains.

And don't miss her Bunch of links post. The very first story surprised me. Can the UsofA government tell a hotel operating in another country who they can, or cannot, rent space to? (And no, it's not USofA war protestors or Greenpeace activists or anyone dangerous like that.)

And then she links to this which is weirdly fascinating but I can't stop to go all the way through now because I have to finish this post. (Later, though.)

(Oh, just go read her blog. Every day.)

Dr. Fallon at In the Dark has also been on a roll recently.

Ex-Abu Ghraib Interrogator : Abuse Was US Policy

Americans IN THE DARK About Constitutional Rights

It looks like Lab Kat has found the story of nine crazy women who have decided that being gay in public (or, let's be very clear, being "outed" as gay by a tabloid) is deceptive advertising. Yes, they're suing. As she says, "...there is almost a zen-like quality to being this stupid."

Prometheus 6 warns the Bush Administration that there's a danger in digging up old laws hanging around on the books. Specifically: State-based impeachment.

Okay, so, Kevin Drum says to go read The Daily Howler (!) on how "modern liberals don't care about low-income kids." And, you know what? He makes some good points.

No link, but I notice that Marshall's Talking Points Memo feed to Bloglines now features an ad on every post. Ads that do not appear on the blog. Very odd. Sort of annoying. I wonder if he does it to pay for the bandwidth that the RSS feed is using or something?

Also from Kevin Drum, discussion about a post (Maxspeak) on the differences between "center" Left and "left" Left Democrats. I'm going to go read it all now.


P.S. To my regular readers:

I don't know how long I can keep up this evening blogging schedule. While it feels very virtuous not to be blogging on company time, and to be working a solid 8 hours instead, it's wearing me out to come home and think this hard.

Besides. I don't want to get this aggravated about things right before bedtime.

Try doing it earlier in the evening. Then, have a nice cup of tea before retiring to bed.

PS: Thanks for the shout-out. :)

Well, normally I would, but what with one thing and another I didn't get home and get started blogging until 8:30 last night. By 11:00, I was definitely feeling cranky. ;)

It was a good entry and a story I hope a lot of people saw. Seems like there's no end to the insanity these days.
