Blogroll: More Than An Arse-Wipe
I read quite a few blogs. Sometimes simply getting through them seems to take up a large chunk of my day. I persist with the exercise not just because of an irrational obsession (although that helps), but because they are consistently interesting and often eye-opening. One of my favourites is Under The Same Sun, maintained by Zeynep Toufe. Her style is impassioned yet clear, concise and original. She recently spent some time in Venezuela looking at the achievements of the Chavez regime and, presumably, investigating the efforts to destabilise his government on the part of domestic and American elites. In her absence, Jonathan Schwarz posted on the blog, introducing me to his style and leading me to his very own blog, A Tiny Revolution. This combines incisive political analysis with a vicious sense of humour, which Zeynep, not unreasonably, as "ahem, sick". Just what the doctor ordered and as such, the latest edition to my burdegeoning blogroll.
