New Hitchens

Just read the new Hitchens piece– as always, a must read:

So it turns out that all the slogans of the anti-war movement were right after all. And their demands were just. “No War on Iraq,” they saidand there wasn’t a war on Iraq. Indeed, there was barely a “war” at all. “No Blood for Oil,” they cried, and the oil wealth of Iraq has been duly rescued from attempted sabotage with scarcely a drop spilled. Of the nine oil wells set ablaze by the few desperadoes who obeyed the order, only one is still burning and the rest have been capped and doused without casualties. “Stop the War” was the call. And the “war” is indeed stopping. That’s not such a bad record. An earlier anti-war demand”Give the Inspectors More Time”was also very prescient and is also about to be fulfilled in exquisite detail.

One of the cool thing about Blogshares is that most of the people who buy and sell your stock have their own website, so if you keep track of your stock and follow it, you might find some websites that you might never have seen before.

For example, this individual, Trent Adams, has a pretty cool guitar/music site with lyrics and all sorts of goodies for musicians, and I would never have found this ite without blogshares. Pretty cool.

Excellent Site

Via the Benevolent Emperor I find this worthy site, Do Not Spam.
