spadoman has honored me with a mention at his place and has written a very nice reply to his tag. hmmmm.... let's see- i can't pick just five blogs- so what i will do is pick five i haven't highlighted yet and link to my previous highlights. i know what you mean spadoman- i would love to take hours and read every single one of the blogs on my sidebar because of the varied perspectives and ideas and thoughts. it's almost as good as my morning cuppa. :) so take a moment if you have one and enjoy these fine blogs- here and here:
neo-resistance- naj has an intellectual blog about many topics but i go there for open discussion of hot political topics. she has an insider's view of iran right now and i, unlike many of my fellow americans, want to know more about that area of the world- not to bomb it.
cat bites man- internet junkie has a way of taking strong topics and making them palatable. a fellow new yorker too!
time- time uses the political cartoon and his spot on commentary to make people think outside of the box. where he finds all of these mini art forms is beyond me- but i am glad that he does!
sew's spot- sew mouse tackles everyday life, politics and a variety of subjects with heart and humor. she has made me giggle out loud like a schoolgirl on several occasions!
Mccs1977- fred- fellow new yorker- and the gang take on culture, politics, war and whatnot in a format that reminds me of ed sullivan and his show- variety. it is a very cool set up over there for searching and finding whatever you are in the mood to read.
