Quality reading for Thursday

As you know, Terry Trippany is the new Watcher of Weasels.  He’s currently finalizing the Weasel’s permanent home, although it still needs a teeny bit more tweaking.  Nevertheless, he’s still compiled this week’s Watcher’s nominations, and it’s very good reading (as always):


1. The Glittering Eye – The 2008 Beijing Olympics

2. Soccer Dad – Charm city charm offensive

3. Bookworm Room – The AP shows surprising honesty when it comes to Joe Biden

4. The Razor – Russia – The New Cold War

5. Joshua Pundit – Biden Off More Than He Can Chew

6. Wolf Howling – What Does Joe Biden Offer To Obama?

7. Colossus of Rhodey – NBC’s Andrea Mitchell Thinks Joe Biden is ‘Not Part of Washington’

8. Rhymes With Right – Not Every POW Supports McCain

9. Cheat-Seeking Missiles – North Coast – Day 5: Bookworm Revealed!


1. Paragraph Farmer – Remaking Grease in Denver

2. Pajamas Media/Belmont Club – Unity

3. Kirby Mountain – Puttin’ the Boone (Pickens) in Boondoggle

4. Seraphic Secret – The Terrorist is Still Dead

5. Telegraph UK – Gavin Menzies: mad as a snake – or a visionary?

6. Michael Totten/Middle East Journal – The Truth About Russia In Georgia

7. Powerline Blog – Energy Policy For The Ignorant

8. Media Backspin – Gadi Evron on Cyber Warfare

9. Boston.com Olympics Blog – You’re Not Supposed to See This

I’ll be voting tonight, and you can get the results tomorrow.  I doubt that the announcement will match the excitement attendant on McCain’s VP pick, but it will still be exciting.

    Haven’t had time yet to read all of them, but that one on T Boone Pickens is dynamite.

    Funny…try to say “Boone Pickens” without the T (I typed it that way and had to correct)….it just doesn’t “work”!

    Btw, Book, you should try and pick up one of David Weber’s books, if you haven’t already.
