Having a full slate of things to do over the long holiday weekend severely cut into my ability to blog in the manner that I have become accustomed to doing. But needless to say, I will take a weekend entertaining my soon to be three-year old grandson, any day of the week. And as a result, my slipping in and out of cyberspace moments were infrequent and short. However, I have managed to come across a few things that might be worthy of a look, should you choose to do so.
From the IHT comes this op-ed piece comparing and contrasting the philosophical differences of Europe and her "renegade" child, America.
From the BBC comes this article that isn't getting much attention from the media here in America right now, despite the fact that it is a significant development in Iranian-American relations.
From the AP comes this article, one that every radical gay activist in America needs to read and consider the next time they are tempted to criticize the treatment of gays, here in America.
The next time someone is tempted to make a fuss over the perceived loss of rights and silencing of dissent in America, they should take a look at this article, from Reuters.
