Infrequent Blog Digest

Because I love it…

From Salon: I generally put either funny or political things in my Blog Digest, but I thought this article was rather important.

Really moving.

From Daily Intel: For those who ride subways or metro things. Basically, if you are not an American and you live in NYC you care about this. Some New Yorkers are complaining about rate hikes on those underground trains. Here is a good Myth/Fact sheet about MTA rate hikes.

From Crooks and Liars: Bill O’Reilly sent his goons (producers) to literally stalk a liberal blogger. It was really nasty, but our the blogger is standing strong. Here is his excellent retort!

From Kanye: The really cool trailer for Where The Wild Things Are. Watch it. Love it.

From Kanye: He thinks these headphones are cool. So do I.

Update: Read this and this from the Holland Sentinel. They are both tremendous examples of political discourse.  It will enrage you. Here is the opening line of the second:
