First of all, a shout out to Lucifer's Condiments
, run by Iron Blog regular The Devil You Know, and to Say Anything
, this week's Sponsors of the Left and Right, respectively. Both are good reads and deserve our support as they support us.
Second, it's gratuitous groveling time. I have a computer again (yay!) but it's a Pentium I 166mhz (boo!). I can upgrade it to a P III with 256mb RAM for $120 (yay!), but I don't have $120 (boo!). If only 12 readers chip in $10 via the Paypal button above, I can upgrade this dinosaur into an actual computer. C'mon. Give in to peer pressure. Everybody's doing it. It'll make you feel good. Ahem. Any donations beyond that will go to getting blogads on other blogs, helping to increase our readership. Even if you don't have $10, you can help us by recruiting new sponsors and patrons (I still worship at the altar of Big Dan) or by emailing big blogs you read, like Daily Kos, Atrios, Andrew Sullivan or Instapundit and telling them how spiffy we are and how they should help support our non-partisan effort to increase the dialogue in this world. It's for a good cause. I've emailed all of them, but I'm one voice. If enough of you email them, they might actually notice.
Now, down to the stuff I'm reading lately, now that I have a computer again:
has a post about possible post-employment involvement by VP Cheney with Haliburton, from a pretty high source. What's your take on this? Use the comments below to battle it out.
has a very powerful letter from the mother of a gay man that is very interesting to read in light of our recent Battle
on Gay Marriage
, a passionate battle in which my Iron Blogger Democrat Jay Bullock
defeated feisty Challenger Jimmie Bisse Jr. of The Suburban Sundries Shack
. Feel free to discuss this letter in our comments section.
On the Right, we have LGF with a timely article about The Soldiers You Never Hear About
, a good read on this day-after Memorial Day. It's articles that normally get missed like this that bring me back to LGF again and again. Discuss the article below in our comments.
And finally, at Winds of Change, Joe Katzman has a note
up about a very worthy cause that could use everyone's help, Right and
Left. Highly recommended.
That's all for now - the Verdict from Battle Torture will be up tonight, so keep an eye open!
