Spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of the web…the thrill of victory…and the agony of defeat…the human drama of athletic blogging…this is Mash’s Wide World of Blogs!
After a long absence the blog reviews are back with a vengeance. Here are this week’s worthy reads:
Robbie from San Diego has started a new blog specifically covering politics. His other blog, Greetings From America’s Finest City, will now focus exclusively on sports. Check out his latest post on the Hamdan decision of the Supreme Court at his new blog.
Calling all Muslims! Musclemouth has a clip of a video entitled Girls Gone Wild Baghdad posted on his blog. He wants to know if Muslims find this clip offensive. His question is a sincere one and if you are a Muslim please view the clip and offer your feedback in the comments section of his post. I have already left my comments on the clip. Please don’t read the comments before posting your views so that he can capture your first impression. So, if you are a Muslim, or know a Muslim, check out the post or refer others to it. I am looking forward to reading everyone’s feedback – it will be an interesting cultural experiment!
As Israel’s "Operation Summer Rain" continues to rain down on the people of Gaza, Sabbah asks "What can they do, kill us?" Read the side of the story we rarely get in the United States. We also learn today that Israel has bombed the Palestinian Prime Minister’s office. I am not sure why the American press thinks this is a surprise after completely failing to cover the story that Israel had notified Mahmoud Abbas by letter that they would assassinate the Palestinian Prime Minister if the kidnapped Israeli soldier was not handed over.
Jeremiah Bullfrog not only loves America, he also loves the environment. He shows off his scientific side by debunking the Global Warming myth and keeping the world safe to breathe in. For those of you waiting to exhale, this is just the post for you.
Jon is still quite upset by this week’s Supreme Court decision in the Hamdan case. He think he knows how the Bush Administration can get around this nuisance of a decision. He recommends that the President declare the Supreme Court justices "Enemy Combatants". It’s a novel and out-of-the-box approach to solving this bump in the road to Guantanamo.
Enjoy the journey!
