Around the Coalition

Haven’t done this for a while, so here goes:

The horsewhooping of Jesus!

Trish Wilson has a couple polls to vote on. We’re losing on one! Go!

New World Blogger
has a link from Slate about video games in countries where the enemy is your country (or something, I can’t figure out how to describe in succinctly; think Japanese playing Medal of Honor: Rising Sun). Just to point out, the Medal of Honor game sucks horribly on Xbox. But this is something that doesn’t surprise me. Too many people take these games too seriously, missing the point that it IS just a game. I’ve played violent video games for years and I’m almost a pacifist.

Bryant discusses free trade. Incidentally, there’s some kind of talk here going on right now on the FTAA. I’m lazy, so I’m here.

Mercury has a contest: create your own Constitutional Amendment!

edwardpig has a letter to his reps about the marriage amendment.

Keith is apparently trying to rid himself of Microsoft products. Not a bad idea. I’ve got Firefox for browsing and Thunderbird for email, but otherwise I’m completely beholden. I’m just not up for going Linux or getting a Mac (not that I could afford it).

Amy dives into Laci and Conner’s Law.

Sheesh, I’m missing what’s going on right in my backyard. I commented earlier on the Darby school board decision; now some students are protesting. Good for them.

Upyernoz on gay marriage.

Lord of the Rings and it’s meanings, or lack thereof.

Jesse creates the Republicons

Andante on the latest Maureen Dowd column

    Yeah I thought that article by Slate was pretty interesting…I’ll never forget the reaction some of my German friends had at seeing my Axis and Allies game — “what? you play and pretend to be the Nazis trying to win the war?” Yes, it sounds twisted. But sometimes a game is just a game, surprisingly enough. I think I had the same reaction when I first heard about Pearl Harbor games and all. But as the article so deftly pointed out, people are sometimes more interested in being allowed to exchange sides and see things from the “other’s” point of view than they are in taking offense. ;)
