DON’T MISS . . .
Miscellany from Weblogs and the World Beyond

Jeanne D’Arc of Body & Soul on race, politics, and Billie Holliday in “Lady Sings The Dixiecrat Double Entendre Blues.” Outstanding.


John Nichols on why the Democratic Party leadership fears -- and mocks -- Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) in the December 6 issue of In These Times, “Saving the Democrats from Themselves.”


John Nichols (again) on the risks associated with “biofarming,” which isn’t at all what I thought it was, in the December 30 issue of The Nation (posted December 12), “The Three Mile Island of Biotech?


David Yaseen of A Level Gaze on the phony argument about the rich paying too much in taxes that lately has reared its ugly head in “Rising tax burden on the rich? What about tax benefits?”


Tom Leonard on whether Leonardo DaVinci was a Renaissance Peacenik in the December 14 edition of The Age (Melbourne), “Da Vinci War Machines ‘Designed to Fail’.”


Ann Rostow at PlanetOut with a too-brief look at how justice is meted out in the home state of wannabe Senate Majority Leader Sen. Don Nickles (R-Okla.) in “Oklahoma Executes Gay Man; Appeals Fail.”
