Another week of posts from Waukesha Bloggers that, when I saw them in my reader, I had to read them. If you have some of your own, feel free to e-mail them to me at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com, or put them in the comments.
In no particular order, here are this week’s posts.
Jobs figured in a couple of posts with The Asian Badger fearing for future job growth under Tom Barrett. Shawn Matson in Balancing Brookfield found a job he wouldn’t mind having. In the school system, can you believe it? silent e, meanwhile, seems to be in Cedar Rapids. If he’s one of the guys that restores power after disasters, he earns all the money he gets and more.
But a bigger source of posts this week was Snowpacolypse 2007. Sancho, posting at Hobo Springs, says school board members should try looking at radar in making their decision to close schools. Dad29 wrote about Elmbrook schools going ahead with schools that day. Jeff at Five Points blog loved having the schools closed. We got lots of snow pictures from Pete at Peterepublic. Ooooo, I loooooove snow! I do know the reason for all that snow. Dad29 and Pundit Nation agreed on something!
Of course, conservatives and lefties, like Tim at The Other Side of My Mouth, can agree on beautiful voices, too.
Only one on the Mitchell Report made the list. Did I subconsciously think mine were better? I hope not. But Huckleberry (the blogger at Spring City Chronicle, not the guy running for president) in his daily summary of news had a good thought,
I was distressed to hear that it named players who were taking substances which were not, at the time, banned by baseball. By definition, they were doing nothing wrong. It’s like suing Coca Cola for distributing coca leaf extract prior to 1903. It wasn’t illegal.
We get two Global
Warming Climate Change posts, one from David at Carrick Bend Thoughts and one from James Wigderson.
It’s the Christmas season and the red kettles are everywhere. Well, except, it seems, for Sendik’s. Kyle Prast of Practically Speaking explains. Drop some change in them when you see them.
Scott Feldstein gives his personal experience with trying to get abisinthe.
I can’t remember if I clipped this post by Fox Head because of what he said about immigration or about teaching union history in school. Both were good.
Jessica McBride correctly notes that war supporters do not like the war as Speaker Pelosi claims.
I think Bob Flessas of Public Trough likes Ron Paul. silent e is “on the ground” in Iowa.
Spring City Chronicle knows personally that it’s not just country singers (or Miss South Carolina contestants) that are dumb geographically.
Dave at Yorick’s Persiflage, who’s majoring in English, wonders where’s the creativity in newspaper writing? Well, circulation numbers are dropping; maybe that’s the reason.
Finally, I’ll welcome Bryon Houlgrave to the blogroll. Bryon is a photojournalist for the Waukesha Freeman.
That’s it for this week. Hope you enjoy it.
