Some Good News


1) Wordsmith did an AWESOME post on an event he went to this past weekend. Here is his brief description of the event:
"On Friday at noon, in Griffith Park, blue state California was awash in red, white, and blue. The National Support Our Troops Tour caravan made a stop, as part of its journey to Washington D.C. for the March 17th protests (which includes The Gathering of the Eagles).

I thought I'd play "citizen-photo-journalist-for-a-day", and share pictures and video clips that I took with my digital camera."
Make sure you take the time to check out the post. Also, you can get a glimpse of Wordsmith here.

2) Skye, Monica, Troll and Always on Watch are all going to the March 17th, Gathering of the Eagles event. I'm jealous that I don't get to go but I'm looking forward to their live, hands on blogging of the event. Mike is going to be posting live for them on Saturday at his site.

3) Lone Pony found a site that rivals Wikipedia called Conservapedia. Here is what she quoted about the site:
"Conservapedia is a much-needed alternative to Wikipedia, which is increasingly anti-Christian and anti-American. On Wikipedia, many of the dates are provided in the anti-Christian "C.E." instead of "A.D.", which Conservapedia uses. Christianity receives no credit for the great advances and discoveries it inspired, such as those of the Renaissance. Read a list of many Examples of Bias in Wikipedia.

Conservapedia is an online resource and meeting place where we favor Christianity and America. Conservapedia has easy-to-use indexes to facilitate review of topics. You will much prefer using Conservapedia compared to Wikipedia if you want concise answers free of "political correctness"."

4) Some Democrats actually have a backbone, who knew? 17 Democrat House Representatives won't vote for the new war bill because it gives a timetable for leaving Iraq. Here are the 17 Democrats:
Michael Arcuri (NY-24)
John Barrow (GA-12)
Melissa Bean (IL-08)
Dan Boren (OK-02)
Jim Cooper (TN-05)
Bud Cramer (AL-02)
Brad Ellsworth (IN-08)
Kirsten Gillibrand (NY-20)
Baron Hill (IN-09)
Tim Mahoney (FL-16)
Jim Marshall (GA-08)
Mike McIntyre (NC-07)
John Peterson (PA-05)
John Salazar (CO-03)
Joe Sestak (PA-07)
Heath Shuler (NC-11)
Gene Taylor (MS-04)

5) You've heard of carbon offsets but have you heard of "Offensive Language Offsets"? Check out Robin's hilarious post on this.
