Newish Blogs


It's gratifying, after several years of blogging, to finally see a sizable expansion in recent months in the number of blogs worth linking to.

Military Thoughts
is by a guy with the comic nom de plume of "coolbert" who knows an enormous amount about, surprise, military history. With the War Nerd hibernating lately, check him out.

The Julian Calendar is the work of a devout Catholic sociobiologist in Australia.

Glaivester's postings are a lot better than his graphics.

covers the media coverage of religion. With Jeremy Lott.

And lots more over in the Links section toward the top of the left hand column.
