Behold the Blog: Around the blogroll and elsewhere
Posted by Jill | 9:00 AM
For sheer fun, and proving just how clever bloggarians can be, check out the responses (and add your own) to Amanda's question of the day: Bad Sequel Ideas.

The Blog Against Theocracy series by Tristero over at Digby is so good it just doesn't pay for me to celebrate by posting yet another screed about why having fundies force their religion down everyone else's throat is a bad idea. Read all four parts here, here, here, and here. And while you're at it, stay over there and read Digby's post on how the U.S. attorney firings were all about minority vote suppression as a way of manipulating elections in the GOP's favor.

In case you had decided to forgive ABC for The Path to 9/11 just because you couldn't live without Lost, don't miss Cernig's post today about how ABC is whoring for the Bush Administration's lust for attacking Iran.

From the "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss" file comes Melina with a post largely dealing with Air America shooting itself in the face again by firing Sam Seder(and don't kid yourself, this so-called Sunday afternoon slot is the Miltonization of Sam Seder. Sam, if you have a red stapler, you know what the deal is.) Now with parrots, dogs, eggs, and for some strange reason, an extremely disturbing photo of a container of 50 lab mice that look strangely dead.

For a shitload of blogger bang for your reading buck, check out Norwegianity's linkitude for Easter Sunday.

If you've missed Tata's hilarious, poignant, heart-wrenching and beautifully written posts during her father's last days, you can still catch them. And if you'd like to become acquainted with the man who served as backdrop for this unintentionally funny family, you can do so here.

If you feel like being subversive today and not making ham, try celebrating Easter by remembering that the Last Supper was really a passover seder -- and make Tami's brisket instead. I've always been a "Lipton onion soup and wrap in foil" girl myself, for all that I like to cook adventurously. It's quick to set up, easy (make sure it's wrapped tightly and put it in a 300 degree oven for three hours), and makes great brisket. But as part of the elimination of Frankenfood from my life and trying to eat only things that don't have ingredients that elicit a reaction of "What the hell is THAT?", I think this recipe is worth a try.

Be sure to swallow that mouthful of coffee before heading over to Skippy's place to watch <10 Things I Hate about Commandments.

Steven Hart at Blue Jersey has a post about Kevin Smith's next movie. I don't care what he says, a movie inspired by "Rev." Fred Phelps simply MUST have Jay and Silent Bob in it in order to have any credibility at all.

Driftglass reminds Steve Young at HuffPo that the right to free speech does not give one the right to a platform accessible to millions from which to spew utter, irredeemable swill.

Watertiger shows us the evolutionary track of Michelle Malkin.

And finally, because it's a dirty job but somebody had to do it:
