LC Presidential Brief(ing) Blogaround

Once more I've "finished the internet" except for my fellow Liberal Coalition members, so let's see what they've been up to:

  • Alex & co. at Sooner Thought urges that fellow Oklahomans write in to oppose a bill which "would deny the AG's ability to force polluting companies, companies who wish to use ourlands and waters as their private dumping grounds, to respect our right to a livable environment."
  • Amy at blogAmY highly recommends the documentary Race: The Power of an Illusion when it comes to your local PBS station.
  • Andante joins in presenting some of the Social Security faces in her family.
  • Bryant "Still No Working RSS Feed" Gries displays a postcard from the Monster.
  • Chris "Lefty" Brown suggests some games for long car trips.
  • At Corrente, Leah pays tribute to the late John Raitt.
  • Echidne is too modest to mention that she's one of the great feminist thinkers.
  • Edwardpig examines the case of a US citizen being held without charges in Saudi Arabia for almost two years. So do those wacky Scrutiny Hooligans.
  • Eryk at And Then... tells us of the sad, useless life of "professional Christian" Michael Marcavage.
  • At First Draft, athenae passes along a bit about a cool school with two student newspapers.
  • Guy Andrew Hall has rebuilt Rook's Rant to make it better, stronger, faster!
  • Jeff at Speedkill shares an odd letter to the editor of the Bozeman Chronicle.
  • John at archy flags down a bizarre wingnut complaint.
  • Jude Camwell at Iddybud warns of the rush to war with Syria.
  • Keith "I Don' Need No Stinkin' RSS Feed" Kisser examines the Citizens for Literary Standards in Schools.
  • Maru Soze informs us that "The chairman for the Young Republican National Convention has been busted for embezzlement."
  • Michael at Musing's Musings lists stuff he liked about France as well as a few he didn't.
  • Moi at bloggg wishes SNL a happy 30th anniversary (god I'm old).
  • Mustang Bobby impresses us all with his ornithological capabilities.
  • Norbizness has a global warming graph - aaugh, a graph, run away!
  • NTodd at Dohiyi Mir is also writing for Blue and Red.
  • Jesse at Republican Sinners advises patience is a virtue.
  • Scott at The Gamer's Nook whimpers expectantly that the hockey season may not be cancelled.
  • Steve Bates, the Yellow Doggerel Democrat, suspects there are some of you out there who enjoy a good slide show.
  • Steve Gilliard doesn't think the Joementum is worth the effort.
  • T. "RSS-less" Rex passes along a great Democratic zinger response.
  • Oh great, just what I need - Trish Wilson says NYC is the 5th most stressful city in the US, with Vegas (where Mom & Dad are) coming in at #4.
  • Upyernoz wishes Turkmenbashi a happy birthday.
  • Wanda at Words on a Page details the latest Chicken Little pronouncement.

  • And finally, this blogaround's informal ECSC (Echo Chamber Stat Count) of how many LC blogs mentioned some of the top left-blogosphere stories of the past week:

    RIP Dr. Hunter S. Thompson - 15
    PropaGannon - 13
    Negroponte's Honduran Killing Fields - 8
    Bush Smoked by Wead - 4
    The Traitor from Plains - 2
    EpiCPAC - 2
    Where Have All Fem-Bloggers Gone, Long Time Passing - 2
    Koko and the Boobies - 2

    I take great comfort in the fact that talk of the gonzo journalist beat out talk of the fake one.
