Liberal Coalition Top Ten
Week of 1/29 thru 2/4/06

Time once again to check in on what members of the Liberal Coalition have been saying:

• Amy at blogAmy makes with teh funny.

• Andante at Collective Sigh mentions the vase-shattering incident at the Fitzwilliam Museum. My klutz karma undoubtedly prevents me from making more museum visits; I fear a similar stumble on my part might have resulted in wiping out the entire floor's collection.

• Bora at Science and Politics expresses skepticism about a discovery that hits close to home, the so-called Bosnian pyramid...

• Charles2 at The Fulcrum is perplexed over the US freeing an actual terrorist, whose release should be as notable as allowing members of the bin Laden family fly out of the US unquestioned on September 13, 2001.

• Echidne notes the re-election of Finland's Tarja Halonen.

• Guy at Rook's Rant passes on some blogging rules.

• Jane Hamsher at firedoglake sinks her teeth into the GOP treason scandal (aka the Plame Name "Game") once again.

• Kathy Kattenburg at Liberty Street has some choice words about the now-so-called Long War.

• T. Rex issues an interesting challenge: come up with one policy from President Bush that was successful. My AAA magazine touts his transportation bill from last year as " an extraordinary comprehensive and complex piece of legislation that will benefit motorists, pedestrians and public transit riders alike," but as I recall that was filled with pork-barrel crap, so I'm stumped.

• Leah at Corrente sings the praises of Newsweek correspondent Christopher Dickey and his lack of myopic provincialism.

• Both Moi at bloggg and Mustang Bobby at Bark Bark Woof Woof pay tribute to Betty Friedan, and Bobby also remembers Coretta Scott King and Wendy Wasserstein, the last of whom he had the pleasure of meeting.

• Norbizness previews the February movies as only he can.

• Lastly, Scrutiny Hooligan Uptown Ruler excerpts a new AlterNet interview with Noam Chomsky.

Happy reading, folks!
