As we have long said, some of the best, smartest writing on the web comes from us smaller bloggers; you know the road less travelled. Today's case in point:

Welcome Back To Pottersville writes an open letter in response to Joe The Plumber.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors and at Liberaland. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
