…my favorite blog stops on a warm, dusty Friday afternoon…

The St. Paul city hall disses the Easter Bunny, big time. Both Powerline and Captains Quarters are locals, so, as you might expect, they’re the ones to go to for the local angle.

Instapundit is always one of my favorite pit stops. Today, both Glenn and Captains Quarters provide links and commentary on the West’s outrage at the recent sham election in Belarus. Jeez, where’s Jimmy Carter to pronounce the elections “legal” and “valid”?

The Anchoress links to a story about a much-awaited study researching the impact of prayer on healing. Her site is always an interesting read. Check it out!

Things are really coming apart in France, and Ankle Biting Pundits has its usual interesting take. Seems that not only did Premier Jacques Chirac walk out of the EU’s Brussels conference because a speaker had the nerve to speak in (gasp!) English, but he’s attending this typical do-nothing EU gab-fest while Muslim rioting in Paris has begun anew. What an idiot.

While on the subject of France, Little Green Footballs has this story on one of France’s most popular comedians – turns out he’s a frothing-at-the-mouth anti-Semite. And all this time I thought Jerry Lewis was their type of humor. Or perhaps not.

Mary Katherine Ham at Hugh Hewitt slams the NY Times on its latest irresponsible piece of “reporting”. Last week it was Abu Ghraib, this week it is Hurricane Katrina. The “grande dame” of mainstream print is certainly having its share of journalistic woes lately; amazing to me anyone takes that paper seriously anymore.

Jim Geraghty (National Review’s TKS) has the latest on Afghan clerics wanting to put to death some poor fellow just because he converted to Christianity, and the political implications for the US in its Global War on Terror. It ain’t pretty.

Surviving Grady is always good for a laugh or two as the Red Sox get ready to set sail on what I believe will be a VERY interesting season.

LSU upsets Duke. Ya think Rob’s excited down at Crab Apple Lane? I wonder if LSU and BC could meet for it all?

The Players Championship continues down at Ponte Vedra Beach. My guaranteed lock Sergio is still in the running. Meanwhile, The Golf Blog piles on with me and many others who believe making this tournament a 5th golf major is a ridiculous idea.

MDV Outlook says it better than I ever could about those ungrateful louts (a.k.a. “peace activists”) rescued by British and American troops in Iraq yesterday. Our brave men and women stuck their necks out to rescue these guys, and that’s the thanks they get?

  2. […] Was looking earlier tonight at the tone of the posts I put up last year at this time and can see the spiritual “prison” I was in. Just a set of lyrics I feel close to tonight… Free as a bird, it’s the next best thing to be. Free as a bird. […]
