Mike's Blog Round Up

Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011). I admired him and loathed him, and for no other major political commentator did I have such mixed feelings. When he wrote about the lies of organized religion and the crimes of Henry Kissinger and others, I applauded. When he promoted American militarism, I recoiled in rage and disgust. Suffice it to say, he left his mark. And he will be missed.

No More Mister Nice Blog: Contra Hitchens. (Check out Driftglass, too.) And Outside the Beltway: Hitchens, R.I.P. -- provides a conservative, yet well-written, blog context.

Booman Tribune: Climate change lemmings.

Beggars Can Be Choosers: Republican truth-denial.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. I'll be here through Sunday.
