HEADLESS BODY IN TOPLESS BLOG: Yale's Finest Publication ("Above the Law... Beyond Good and Evil... And Somewhere to the Right of Attila the Hun") has a pretty groovy interview with Patrick Belton of Oxblog. I encourage you all to go read it. Then go give the YFP money for booze!--I mean, for Indian food. Yes. Right.Anyway! I had a couple comments--about theology, and the tabloid press. (Note that this post also wins the "Desperate...But Not Sirius" award for Least Justifiable Harry Potter … [Read more...]

(I'm looking for blogs by Iraqis in Iraq now, written in English.) ...The upshot is, this will be the last time I try a comprehensive read-through of the Iraqi blogosphere! That's really exciting: There are just way too many Iraqi blogs for me to keep up with. I'll be reorganizing the blogroll over there to reflect the ones I expect to read fairly often. I think the Iraq Blog Count is now up to 73. If anyone can think of something especially … [Read more...]
