I wanted to take a moment to call attention to a few great blogs on my blogroll who I believe deserve a lot more attention than they get. There are so many outstanding writers out there who (IMO) should rank much higher in the TTLB Eco-system than they are. Their traffic may be in the […]

This week’s guest Vents over at Hot Air have been fun to watch, and the male rightie blogosphere has been enjoying them in more ways than one, judging by the comments section to today’s Vent (with realVerse‘s Bethany) and Monday’s Vent with NC’s own Mary Katharine Ham.

Hot off the presses! Here are the details of the upcoming NC conservative blogger conference I posted about a couple of weeks ago.

Do you think John Mark Karr killed JonBenet?

(Scroll to the bottom for the Weds. AM Update) He’s awaiting his hearing today. I’m skeptical that he murdered her, and think (like many) that the reason he’s doing this is because he gets some perverse kick out of being associated with the case (considering he was obsessed with it for years) – what better […]

 

Weds open thread – and talent show ;)

Maybe we can get a ‘talent show’ theme going in this thread today. Just came across this video at YouTube of a guy who was able to match up all the color sides of a Rubik’s Cube in 25 seconds … with one hand: Not earthshattering, I know, but still cool. Now, with that in […]
