Thinking Blogger Awards

Yes, it's quite the development I've learned of...Mentarch at Another Point of View has been kind enough to tag me with that interesting little phenomenon known as the Thinking Blogger Award. Right back at ya, Mentarch, the blogging community is a wonderful thing.

So here's the business part - the rules:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.
And in turn, five blogs that make me think:

1. liberal catnip, of course. Let's just get this out of the way. Always right there on the leading edge with a progressive critique of the Bush administration and its many foibles. Terrific research and powerful writer.

2. A View from the Left. This kid's got moxie! A 19 year old university student who unabashedly puts her views out there on all things going on in the federation. When I was 19 and away at university, I'll tell you, I wasn't spending my time in front of a computer, if you know what I good for her for gettin' this done!

3. I have to include Cerberus. The big dog of the legal set. What with his getting-sued advice and all, he's a blogger's best friend, not to mention the dose of hilarity he injects with his many, shall we say, projects.

4. Afghanistanica. A very worthy blog to check out written by a graduate student studying the country. Timely and relevant for us, of course due to its focus. Great links/resources for anyone interested in learning more about this country beyond the superficiality of day to day media coverage.

5. Sir Robert Bond Papers. Yes, Bond...Robert Bond...:) Offers a great perspective from Newfoundland that's of great interest these days given the tremendous hullabaloo afoot in the nation over equalization, oil et al.

So there you go, enjoy all...:)
