A Waukesha Carnival for 3/2/2008

by thoughtfulconservative

OK, better late than never, right? After getting my connection problems solved, here is this week’s Waukesha Carnival. I attempt to post here links to posts that were submitted by Waukesha bloggers via the Blog Carnival form or sent directly to me at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] or that I’ve read that piqued my interest enough to read it.

We’re still in the middle of the presidential campaign and The Asian Badger add one more name to the list of possible McCain vice president choices.

Shawn Matson at Cooler Near the Lake began a series of Barack Obama administration possibilies. Perhaps a bit early after last nights results.

This past week the conservative icon, William F. Buckley, died. There were tributes all over the internet from both the left and right. Two in the Waukesha part of the Cheddarsphere that I saw were Tom Gehl at Brookfield Basics and James Wigderson’s personal recollection.

Cindy Kilkenny is traveling. Start here and, at least, look at the pictures.

Now let’s have some economics posts. Dad29 starts us off with a post entitled “The Donkey: Greenspan” highlighting how the former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board had a penchant for printing money. Foxhead has a snippet on oil, taxes and taxing oil. silent e takes a look at those “tax cuts for the rich.”

News about Waukesha bloggers. Jeff details changes at Five Points blog. Kyle Prast at Practically Speaking celebrated her first blogoversary. Congratulations! We also note the addition of The Veritas Project to our blog roll.

Spring City Chronicle fills us in on a recent trip to dreaded downtown Milwaukee.

David B. Bohl posts on Slow Dance – A Way of Life, where he shares, “A friend of mine sent me a chain email today presumably written by a terminally ill young girl who was being treated for cancer in a New York Hospital.” He goes on to note the hoax, but also a wonderful poem that is used in the e-mail.

Pete Fanning tells us about the USS New York and a fascinating fact about the ship.

That’s it for this week. You can share ones from your reading in the comments.
