Around the Horn Part 9. Not Responsible.

Still listening to Gorillaz by the way. Not as much as last week, but still once a day or so.

The Invisible Library has a bit about changes in the Mac Chip set, which is a bit out of my technical reach, but of some interest.

Speedkill has a reaction to the Medical Mary Jane decision earlier this week.

Scrutiny Hooligans has a rather disturbing discussion of the concept of Peak Oil.

Pen-Elayne on the Web has further thoughts on that age old question of where female bloggers are.

You know when you think about it, this is a weird question. I mean we accept (or are aware) that woman get certain roles on TV, in the movies, in books, in comic books, in news rooms, and elsewhere because of age old customs that belittled woman and smacked of misogyny. In other words, the history of the medium explains, if not justifies, the limitations placed on women (and others).

And yet here is a brand new medium. The pioneers of this medium might have been doing it for, what, a decade at most? There is no history to blogging, except the one we are making day by day. And yet we apparently have the same old problem. Kind of makes you wonder if we are really as non-sexist as we would like to think.

Anyway back to the blog-a-round.

Rubber Hose has a piece on renting Germans. Remember, no one who speaks German could be evil.

Musings Musings has a reaction to a New York Times Report of Mr. Greenspan's recent comments on our fabulous economy.

LEFT is RIGHT has some thoughts about Howard Deans fundraising strategy, and what a man's word is worth.

ECHIDNE OF THE SNAKES has some words to share on Howard Dean as well, this time talking about his public pronouncements.

Iddybud asks some tough questions about the latest batch of photos from Abu Ghraib and those who supported the war in Iraq.

And that's it for another week. Be back later, as far as you know.
