Round the Horn. An Irwin J. McIckleson Production



Greetings. This is Irwin J. McIckleson, fictional 1910's plutocrat, serving as your tour guide to various websites, many of which are run by members of the Liberal Coalition.

. . . You Are a Tree has
the news that a television show called Battlestar Galactaca will produce a "spin-off" called Capricia. Both seem like unlikely names for entertainment.

What is a Battlestar?

The Countess is not writing as frequently at her blog as she is doing writing elsewhere, but she
did note that a plan for Shared Parenting failed in New York. In this plan I presume the child would be placed in two homes at once after parents have a falling out. If this is a problem, perhaps you future people should consider making Divorce nearly impossible the way we did in my day.

At any rate the Countess's blog is a very fine endeavor and we shall have to hope that she finds the occasion to update it from time to time even with her new artistic projects.

archy has a piece on
the concept of Peak Oil, which is the idea that Oil will become more expensive as it becomes more rare. Which makes sense to me, although I'd also be wary of a smart oil-invested plutocrat ripping you off.

Shystee at correntwire has
a piece on a gentleman named Joe Klien and his prescription for the Democratic party. It seems to boil down to the idea that the Democrats should focus on how best to serve the plutocratic class, which seems like a sensible strategy. The workers of the world do not really matter; rather politics should be built around who can do the best for the plutocrats.

Echidne of the Snakes has
a piece on how Conservatives feel about Liberals and also the phrase "Bitch-slap." It seems like an ugly phrase, but I suppose that fits how Conservatives feel about Liberals.

Rook's Rant has
an article that covers the difficulties moderate members of the Republican Party are facing in making piece with the more angry and extreme parts of their party.

Musing's musings has
a piece on how President Bush is punishing a government agency in charge of handling disasters because he failed to handle emergencies in a timely fashion.

Science and Politics has
a poem about a pair of water lizards. And pictures of the beasties.

Anyway hope you have enjoyable weekends.
