Paul McKeever presents Anti-Semitism, Tribalism, Irrationalism & the Postal Workers Union posted at Paul McKeever.
Ari Armstrong presents Lake of Fire posted at AriArmstrong.com, saying, "This documentary about abortion interviews people from the religious right and the academic left, reviews various abortion-related murders, and shows abortion procedures."
Flibbert presents Crackpot posted at Flibbertigibbet, saying, "What doesn't eat meat because he thinks it's unhealthy, but smokes pot regularly, doesn't go to the drug store because he thinks everything in there is poison, hates you for causing global warming and, in spite of own owning a Toyota Prius, doesn't believe hybrid cars exist.
Did you guess Bill Maher? I probably wouldn't have either, but that's why I blogged about it. I also made a video about it for YouTube, but that's not in this post. But if you hang out on my blog, you can see that, too!" I had no idea Bill Maher was this wacky, did you?
Diana Hsieh presents Self-Defense on Campus posted at NoodleFood, saying, "My letter advocating concealed carry on college campuses was recently published in the Colorado Springs Gazette." It's a great letter and how awesome that it got published!
Dan Edge presents The Teleology of Emotions posted at The Edge of Reason, saying, "This article explores the function of emotions from a philosophical perspective. The basis for this essay is an OAC tutorial I had recently with Dr. Onkar Ghate."
C. August presents Operation Barbie Invasion posted at Titanic Deck Chairs, saying, "Could a plastic doll with big, um... market appeal... be the West's newest freedom fighter?" I thought they were huge tracts of land, but market appeal works, too. :o)
