Objectivist Round Up #249

Welcome to the April 26, 2012 edition of the Objectivist Round Up! It's short and sweet this week, folks. I'm still in between houses in our moving process and busily preparing for ATLOSCon which is LESS THAN A MONTH AWAY! If you want to register, go here. I hope you'll join us. It's going to be our best conference yet. :D

And now, here's our micro-carnival! (Thanks, as always, to everyone who participates and hosts and spreads the word. hint hint)

Diana Hsieh presents Riding Horses: Lila and Elsie posted at NoodleFood, saying, "Thanks to a visit from my mom, I've begun riding my horse Lila's companion horse, Elsie. It's an adventure!"

Paul Hsieh presents Why Science Whistleblowers Are Ignored posted at We Stand FIRM, saying, "Government-funded medical science is becoming increasingly corrupt. And this may corrupt medical practice."

Edward Cline presents A Renewed Assault on Freedom of Speech posted at The Rule of Reason, saying, "House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi of California and her fellow Democrats wish to “amend” the First Amendment in order to prohibit corporations from saying anything or spending anything during national elections. There is some satisfaction to be had in no longer having to identify her as House Speaker. I never liked seeing her wield that gavel. Someone once remarked that a hammer in hand causes one to search for nails to pound in, and she was always searching for nails. She specialized in coffins."

Darius Cooper presents Guest Post by Florentine signory from 1340 posted at Practice Good Theory, saying, "See the Florentines argue for their freedom"

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Objectivist Round Up using our carnival submission form.
