Blogs of Summer

Toon Credit: Calvin & Hobbes

I am doing a bunch of research for a Hezbollah post and then I spent last night in the hospital so I decided to post this fun stuff first and then post my Hezbollah one tomorrow. My husband had emergency surgery last night to get his appendix out. Two days ago when he told me he was in pain and was going to the Dr. yesterday I was concerned. My husband never goes to the Dr. and has a pretty high tolerance for pain so I knew it was a big deal. But the surgery went well and he should be able to come home sometime today.

I got an email about joining the Blogs of Summer and about the Blogs of Summer Awards. I talked him into adding political blogs as an additional category. Here are the details:
