It's only yet midnight in the eastern part of the U.S. guys! Anyway, here's my picks:
Good ol’ Xanth has undoubtedly written some of the best blogs this site has had to offer and here are some of my favorites:
The newly discovered poor
It's the torture stupid!
The Constitution: Still Alive and Kicking
And I think the most unique contribution any of us have given to TWM was Xanthippas’ live coverage of the ACS national convention earlier this year (although I think his paid trip to the convention is a Jerome Armstrong-esque scandal in the making! Just kidding, he's an editor-at-large for them too). Here are the links to day 1, 2, 3 and, uh, 3.
Another area I'd like to point out is this wiseman's probing and analysis of ethical issues, such as in this blog and this one.
One final thing I've quite enjoyed from this wise man is his direct rebukes of columns by conservatives. Here are some favorites:
Krauthhammer Still Wrong on Iran
Christopher Hitchens Still Insane
This wise man's greatest achievement so far I believe is his excellent post on Somalia from a few weeks ago, which I think has brought an in-depth analysis I've seen *nowhere* else. You can find that here.
But Nat-Wu has certainly brought us a lot of good analysis on a wide array of issues, often adding a moral clarity that I think is easily lost in the blogosphere and in political punditry in general. Here are some good examples:
A Red Child in White Man's World
Problems with lethal injection
Much in the same Xanth has looked at ethical issues, Nat-Wu has explored many interesting local and non-political issues. Here are some good examples:
Bottled Water: Not Good For You
It appears the soft-drink industry has caved
UTA forced to take down flags in Nedderman Hall
In the end, I am proud to be part of a blog that features such talented minds and writers, and will humbly keep being a part of it as we take on new issues over the next year.
