Updating my Universe

AFter being away to do some real world things - like paint my living room and watch election returns, I'm now firmly back to more blogging. Hopefully I'll be able to get my production up here, as well as the othe rplaces I guest blog.

Meanwhile, I've added three new connections to my list of Other People I Like. I have to confess that I am not a fan of long blog rolls on a blog. I know folks who have lots of time - or get paid - to read and respond to lots of other bloggers. I'm not one of them. So I keep my blog rolling to a minimum, and I select sites to add that I really like and that I actually interact with.

So First, let me introduce Progressive Conservative. PC is one of the few right leaning blogs I read for one simple reason. While PC and I disagree, he is always civil to me, welcoming of my interaction, and willing to start from the stand point that liberals and conservatives have differences of policy, but aren't bad people. I encourage you to read his stuff.

Second, but no less important is The Science Cheerleader. Darlene was actually a cheerleader, is now a science advocate, and also makes a great lunch companion. She is really involved in actions to increase citizen involvement in science, and I can't wait to see what she tunrs up.

Next, I add Glenn Greenwald over at Salon.com. Yes he's liberal, but he's also civil and forthright.

Finally, I have linked to a particluar post from "From so small a beginning." Its author summarizes the need for science literacy far ebtter then anyone else I have seen.

Check these folks out. Read what they have to say, and think about it. Your world will be enlarged, I guarantee it.

Phil,

I've appreciated the link back to my own blog, and returned the favor as soon as I noticed. Thanks, and keep up the blogging when time allows. :)
