I apologize for not posting over the weekend. Just wiped out from work, I guess.
Anyway, following are those posts in the Waukesha County portion of the Cheddarsphere that I found most interesting. They appear in no particular order.
Mayor Nelson posted his memo that he usually posts before a Common Council meeting.
James Wigderson had some advice on picking the new school superintendent.
Jessica McBride wants folks to stop “disrespecting social conservatives” not that many folks will listen, but I agree.
Troy Fullerton ponders whether a conservative of conscience could vote for John McCain. I say yes, since McCain’s conservative rating matches closely with Fred Thompson’s rating among other well-known conservatives.
Kyle Prast at Practically Speaking tells about the trials of going green.
Scott Feldstein asks, “If there were a magic button which would make it so that no sexually active couple ever became pregnant unless they explicitly wanted to, would you push it?” As he says, as a group, pro-lifers would say no, but I’m one of those who would say yes.
If you haven’t followed the Kevin Fischer brouhaha, you’ve missed a doosie. Cindy Kilkenny, now blogging at Fairly Conservative, was involved and even James Wigderson got pulled into it. Be ready to do some reading and clicking if you hope to follow this.[ed. - For those surfing over here, please note, I have no horse in this race. Some of the posts and comments have been removed and I have not followed it from the beginning, nor do I particularly want to. My interest is the amount of bandwidth that has been expended in this endeavor.]
Yorick’s Persiflage reports on a health care forum held at Carroll College.
Spring City Chronicle proposes something called the Larry Nelson Memorial Auditorium. I just give his warning,
This post advocates public spending on what some might call a grand scale. This may cause my more sensitive conservative and libertarian readers to suffer the vapors or have a conniption.
Ya gotta love it when anyone uses the word conniption.
Finally, Lisa at Sequentially Speaking has a list of the Marvel comic books that have “Lost” easter eggs in them.
That’s all there is this week. If you have some you’d like to suggest for this week or next week, let me know, either in the comments or e-mail to thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com .
