Is it the weekend yet? I've been a Steelers fan my whole life and I can't even begin to describe my anxiety.

Pruning Shears: The economic aspects of the Egyptian uprising.

The Democratic Daily: Appalling animal cruelty in British Columbia.

David E's Fablog: On Sarah Palin and chicken sandwiches.

Fruits and Votes: When autocrats are in trouble, they unleash the goons.

Finally, Blogroll Amnesty Day (B.A.D.) is coming up this weekend and the week-long celebration is starting today. The idea is to celebrate smaller blogs, those that don't get much traffic but that deserve more. So not, say, HuffPo, but most of the blogs that are featured in Mike's Blog Round Up day after day. Read them, not just once but frequently. Show them some love. There's a lot of awesomeness beyond the A-listers. (Thank you to Skippy and of course Jon Swift, whom we all miss.)
