8th Objectivist Carnival

Welcome to our newest edition of the Objectivist Round Up!

Flibbert starts us off this week with The Secret History of the Pink Carnation posted at Flibbertigibbet, commenting, "This is a book review of The Secret History of the Pink Carnation. My general opinion is that it's worth the read because it's lots of fun, but this isn't without reservation. Check out my complete review!"

Martin Lindeskog offers Chicken Scratch And Moo-Ham-Mad Dog over at EGO, which concerns some hoopla over cartoons of Muhammad in a Swedish newspaper. Surprisingly, there is a bit of an uproar going on, particularly since the cartoon in question appears--to some--to depict Muhammad's head on a dog's body.

DWSUWF presents Chalk up another one for divided government. posted at Divided We Stand United We Fall. Stephen Sliviniski, economist, author of Buck Wild, Director of Budget Analysis for the Cato Institute, and DWSUWF favorite, comments on recently released CBO budget estimates.

Last week, I neglected to include one of our submissions (sorry!). The author of this blog is not an Objectivist as far as I can tell, but his post may be of interest to Objectivists, so I've decided to include it. Eric Michael Johnson presents The Feeling of What Happens posted at The Primate Diaries which offers some physiological explanations for religious visions or revelations.

I'll wrap up this week's carnival with my thoughts on the real agenda of the National Education Association at On The NEA here on Rational Jenn.
