A weekly feature in which I link the most intriguing blog posts I came across this week. Part roundup, part link love, with the ultimate goal to simply increase awareness of the work of some excellent bloggers I have met.
David Niewert addresses the parallels during the Second World War and the Iraq War with regard to the U.S. goverment's disregard for individual rights. Liberal Dem has some great pictures of spring arriving at the Toledo Botanical Gardens.
Valbee adds her thoughts about yesterday's snowed-out Mud Hens game, while Screaming Nutcase weighs the value of a shotgun as a self-defense weapon. Subcomandante Bob brings us the heartwarming (or is it heartworming) tale of the new Canine Crusade for Christ ministry.
Historychic rants about boors who pester her about having children. Nicole Nichols has an excellent essay debunking neo-Nazi Bill White's failed attempt to hold Cincinnati hostage.
Microdot offers some delicious suggestions on Boeuf aux Carrotes, complete with an appetizing photo. Finally, Lisa Renee's husband Miguel gets a photo picked up by WTOD's website. Congratulations!
