*PHEW*! Middle of the made it! Now it's just a jump to the left...

Actor212 of Simply Left Behind, among other blogs, here making the turn into the homestretch of my week-o-guest blogging Mike's Blog Round Up. So what's on tap for today?

- Somalia. Sande alerts us to the similarities between Somalia and Iraq. The key word? Chaos.

- A bit of a scoop from NYC Educator: Rudy Giuliani hates "socialized medicine" run by government. Then why was his prostate cancer treated under a government healthcare program?

- His Vorpal Sword reminds us that Scott Beauchamp is not the first soldier harassed by right wingers for speaking truth about Iraq. Another kind of war porn.

- I get FreeSpeechTV on my Dish. A few weeks back, FSTV profiled the Freeway Blogger. I made a mental note to get him up here, so...Blogcalypse Now...(*note* May not be safe for work)

- Haiku. Gesundheit! A quickie from the poetess, MadKane on Pakistan. - Here's a vaccine against the new talking point for the Republicans: "The Do-Nothing Congress." Don't let it happen to you

- Finally, the Weblog Awards are winding down. I know John would never toot his own horn, but that won't stop me from tooting it for him....wait, that didn't come out right. Anyway, you can vote for Crooks and Liars here, for Best Video Blog. And so long as you're in a voting mood, please vote for my blog, Simply Left Behind, here, if you like the job I've been doing with the Round Up.

Please email tips to Actor212 care of Yahoo spot com. I can't promise to post them all. I can promise to read them.

Can you help us out?
