Oh, yeh: I’m lazy. So this is also a linkfest. More below the roundup.
Leaning juuuust a tad to the right…
Michelle Malkin puts a =30= on the Amanda Marcotte brouhaha. And if you missed last week’s “When Angry German Boy met Angry Edwards’ Blogger”, here’s your chance to remedy that miss of The Hit of the Week.
But then, as Dean Barnett notes at Hugh Hewitt’s blog, The Girl [Marcotte] Can’t Help Herself!. It’d all be hilarious if the continuing examples of psychopathic disorders weren’t so blatant in Marcotte’s writing.
Alexandra’s re-issue of an article from last year, “Restoring Humility To Our National Psyche In The Face Of Nihilism” is a provocative read. My $0.02: true humility is looking at oneself honestly, not as any better OR worse than in reality.
A reminder from Big Lizards that it wasn’t human-caused global warming that killed off the dinosaurs… (lil editorial license in the characterization *heh*)
Jerry Pournelle’s comment on the same material is on target:
…a theory with evidence casting doubt on the “Global warming is due to human activity” hypothesis can’t find any journal to publish it, even though the theorist has impeccable credentials. Are we astonished? I certainly am not. This is the kind of thing that set Michael Crichton off. And it’s not science, just what a lot of scientists do…
And see the comment by Czech President Vaclav Klaus noted at Chaos Manor. (Page down quite a way–though Harry Erwin’s Letter From Emgland is worth a read, too.)
Started hunting around yesterday when I noticed (yeh, I guess I should check more often) that the TTLB Ecosystem has apparently not changed since about the first week of January. Maybe this is why. Yep. N.Z. Bear’s in the thick of The Victory Caucus.
The Board is currently kicking off the first of many discussions on our group blog, taking on the most fundamental question of all: how do we define victory?
I hope you will visit the site and join us in sending a message to our leaders, our troops, and the world that America will not flinch from the fight, and that we will not settle for anything less than victory.
Meanwhile, as N.Z. is occupied elsewhere, twc is retaining its ridiculous ranking in the TTLB Ecosystem game. Silly, just silly.
Well, that’s all the time I can give this lil roundup on a bleak midwinter’s morning. Be sure to track in with my reading list for this evening!
