Just a note for those of us who are readers of Rafe Champion that he has recently completely revised his “Full Index” page on his blog The Rathouse in order “to make the bits and pieces on the site easier to find.” (He adds, “I hope!”)
It looks great to me, makes it easy to find articles by topic, and includes among other things a comprehensive list of his articles on the Rathouse site as well as on others such as as Club Troppo and Catallaxy.
If for some reason any of y’all aren’t readers of Rafe’s work, I highly recommend going over and having a look. For me, it looks like I’m going to have a bit of down-time with only sporadic internet access this week so I’m busy downloading some of his “back catalog” for when I feel the need for some brain-food.
And, oh well, as long as I’m plugging blogs here, although I only recently “discovered” it (hey, make allowances for me; I’m still a relative newbie), I really recommend the skepticlawyer blog, if you’re not already a reader of it. I only found it via a link during the recent “blog wars,” but I’ve been clicking over now when I get a chance lately and have found some interesting posts there. From what I’ve read so far, the two bloggers, SkepticLawyer and Legal Eagle, don’t seem to have much interest in snarking or point-scoring and I’ve found it (again, only from my limited reading so far) to be a pleasant oasis of intelligent and civil discussion and analysis.
Two recent posts I think might interest some of our regulars here: yesterday’s “Something Rotten in the State of WA” (as the Sandgropers among us ask “…and this is news?”) and one from earlier this month, “Right to a child versus rights of a child.”
Anyway, you’ll find both Rafe’s blog and the Skepticlawyer blog over on our blogroll. Have a poke around and see what you think.
[EDIT 17 March 5:45am – AUGH! I just realised that I spelled “Skeptic” in SkepticLawyer wrong (the Aussie c, not Yank k way). And not once, not twice, but a beautifully consistent three times above. Sorry, guys. Fixed.]
