One man's view of the world, from the top of this great big rock somewhere in the middle of God's Country, with an eye toward freedom....or at least some way to get back down without goin' over the edge.

Points Of Interest: May 8, 2006

The well-read-and-equally-well-written Baldilocks is never at a loss for words (when her computer isn't screeching blue-bloody-murder at her, anyway). Lately, she has posted a quick article about things to do in Mexico when you're nekkid (no, there are no burros involved, you sickos) and a somewhat more loquacious piece about someone who may be starting to feel a bit of a draft herself.

Teflon Don of Acute Politics -- a warrior-poet if ever there was one -- wraps up a three-part missive on what he did in the war today. It is well worth the read, and (in my view, at least) gives a stellar demonstration of what would be lost if that ban on battlefield blogging ever really DOES come to fruition.

Our old buddy Pat Sajak shows how revealing those old "come-in-for-a-conference" letters from teachers to parents can be concerning a child's future achievements.

The DANEgerus one opens up a tall-boy on...hell, just about everybody. Today, that number includes:
1) ABCNews for their coverage of the recent DNC candidates' debate;
2) those who would like to conveniently forget something Billary once said about Saddam;
3) Ted Rall for...well, being Ted Rall; and
4) anyone seriously considering paying reparations to....Guam???

And finally, Val Prieto over at BabaluBlog gives us a quick picture of the Cuban-American community as seen in Florida, as a means of contradicting the statements of someone who recently made a film that apparently does not paint them in the kindest light.

(Disclosure: My brother married a Cubana a couple of years ago, and I got the chance to meet my new relations at the wedding. For what it's worth, they certainly seem like fine and decent people to me.)
