  1. Do you remember a while back that I said I enjoy reading this blog?

    http://www.firstthings.com/blogs/theanchoress/2010/07/25/the-game-who-goes-nazi/

    That’s a really fascinating Dorothy Thompson article in there. Really the sort of writing that lives with you.

    Well I’m still commenting on. I wonder if they ever reflect on the fact that I’ve been around there for a year & my views are still the polar opposite of theirs on just about everything :)

  2. As for links in general. I have got a job that involves more work so I find myself blogging less. I am concerned that I might miss out on something or failto notice a new blog. SoI’m glad you’re aggregatin’ :)
