Bene Legere Saecla Vincere

SAY, EVERYBODY! Our good friend Scott Rubush is back to blogging after a long hiatus -- it seems he has finally fixed his lap-top. Do pay Mr Rubush a visit, and do so often.

Michael Williams has organized a symposium featuring short stories from quite a few recognized bloggers, including our good friend Andrew Dodge.

Dean Esmay is doing yeoman's work publicizing an American soldier's drive to bring toys to Iraqi children. Go take a look. It's a truly good endeavor, and in addition is a way to win the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people during the re-establishment of their Government.

Ken Layne knows music -- and has the finished CDs to prove it. Go buy some.

What in the ... hell?

What in the ... um ... well, Gad.

By the way, we will give MAJOR style points for anyone who can identify the fellow to the left of Maria Bartiromo in our new Web banner. The Swami, one of our many loyal Rant readers, knows!

If you're looking for left-of-center news and views on the Democratic Presidential primary, Oliver Willis is your man. How serious is he taking it? Well, on his index page right now, there's not one picture of a hot girl.

We just had to point out that we're a Primo Blog over at Richard Bennett's site. We offer our sincere thanks to Mr Bennett, and humbly note that we do, in fact, rule.

That anonymous guy over at Curveball -- WHOMEVER HE COULD BE --has a damning review of "The Brotherhood of Poland, N.H." It seems that, as per usual, Hollywood has screwed up again in portraying how the Granite State operates. Gad. Also there is haiku.

Illinigirl enlightens us about someone called Bob Guinney, whom we are told is searching for a wife on television. We are reminded that a key reason that Joseph Heller finished Catch-22 was because so much of what was on television was crap. Even back in the Fifties.

Tim Blair is excited about Australia's rugby championship. We wish Collingwood all the best of luck.

Finally, if you are going to be in New York on Oct. 5, you owe it to yourself to go see Sheila O'Malley perform LIVE. The details are here.

That's pretty interesting about Heller. Maybe soon I will learn to turn off the tube and go start my novel :) Thanks for the link though.
