Billmon is back—at least for now

leave a comment »

Billmon was long one of the most thoughtful and interesting bloggers around—his blog, Whiskey Bar, included a line from The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny (Brecht and Weil) as its epigraph and the posts there were always worth reading. However, Whiskey Bar has long been shuttered. But now Billmon appears anew—at least for one post. Click and read.

The Dynasty of Dr. Lao

with one comment

As you might guess, I use Google Reader to track quite a few sites. Some sites I always enjoy viewing, though I don’t always link to. But if you’re using a reader, let me recommend that you add The Dynasty of Dr. Lao to the sites you check. He always seems to have something of interest.

EFCA update

leave a comment »

Jane Hamsher at Firedoglake:

The NRSC put together a commercial that’s supposed to scare the bejesus out of everyone at the thought of EFCA (the Employee Free Choice Act) passing under an Obama administration, but I couldn’t have made a better one myself. The prospect should be exciting for everyone who considers themselves a progressive.

Click the link to see the commercial and to read more.

McCain: close to $1 million from Big Oil

with one comment

Presumably in payment for reversing his position on off-shore drilling. Take a look at this post, especially the graph. Money talks. Or at least it buys talk.
