Wednesday reading 

Pete Blackshaw writes about the blogs' performance in covering the tsunami disaster - from a marketing and communications perspective. Interesting, and it even mentions yours truly in passing.

cautions against the rush to proclaim theocracy in Iraq.

Tim Blair notes the spread of the

how he fell in love with history and maps.

Greyhawk reminisces about
Christmas in Baghdad.

Chester continues to defend Lt Gen Mattis (
here and here).

Joe Gandelman writes that the Jordon affair
tarnishes both CNN and WoPo's Howard Kurtz. Speaking of the Jordon affair, if you're a junky, there's now a whole blog devoted to it: Easongate. Instapundit, Powerline, Captain's Quarters, Hugh Hewitt and Michelle Malkin are also providing frequent - or in some cases constant - coverage.

Decision 08 notes that
the ancient Greeks would not have been able to stand Barbara Streisand, either.

pictures from her latest sojourn to Syria, Jordan and Egypt.

The UN's Millennial Development Goals? Debt write-off? Ethiopundit blogs about the futility of throwing money at the problem (in parts
one, two, and three).

Why not also check out a few new(er) blogs and sites:
Vietpundit, written by a Vietnamese-American refugee from communism; Blackanthem - Winning the war on terror one dead terrorist at a time, a great source of news and information about victories in the war; a new Australian blog Calling a Spade a Spade; and Conservative Life - All Politics.
