All Day Open TrackBacks: 11/17/2005

Because of the IIS-to-Apache issues I've run across, I really haven't had the time to peruse the BlogRoll. So, I'm not offering anything for breakfast, and don't expect to offer anything for lunch. And don't know yet about supper.

However, if you have an interesting post that you'd like to share, please leave a TrackBack to that post, and please link to this post so that others can enjoy the fun.

Since this might be the only Open TrackBacks post here today, feel free to leave up to three posts today (you know, one for each meal). Oh, and all at once or spread them out; either is okay.

If you need help with TrackBacks, Harvey of Bad Example has an excellent primer here, or check out my post about TrackBacks here. If your blog can't generate TrackBacks, use either the form here or here.

  3. The Knuckleheads of the Day award

    I've never given the award to a blogger, so this is a first. Today's winners are Robert Cox and the Media Bloggers Association.

  4. Eghad! I’ve Been Googled!

    There’s a reason that neither “Yahooing” nor “Alta-Vistaing” quite made it as verbs. But at what cost are we Googling and being Googled?


  5. Article III Groupie Outed!

    Samuel A. Alito, Jr. is claiming that he has absolutely no relationship whatsoever with her ("him") in his post "A Terrific Misunderstanding"; "Ladies and Gentlemen, this has gotten out of hand. This site does not bear any relation to Articl...

  6. Do As They Say -

    As always, with the Rich and Famous, it is never their fault, as whatever misdeeds they commit can always be blamed on the “hired help”, and that is exactly what the Davids are doing. In a letter to the commission, the Davids explained tha...

  7. Strong Evidence there Were WMDs in Iraq

    Where the WMDs Went, by Jamie Glazov, an absolute must-read:
    It was probably on my second inspection that I realized the Iraqis
    had no intention of ever cooperating....I came into the inspection program as an interrogator and Arabic linguist, so I cros

    1) Do you think that every child in Africa should have access to clean disease-free drinking water?
    2) Isn...

  12. Strategic Victory Achieved in the Ongoing War Against Israel

    A must-read, but understated, editorial from the Jerusalem Post:

    The Rafah Border Crossing Deal
    How committed are the Palestinians themselves to preventing weapons from being smuggled from Egypt into the Gaza Strip, or from the Gaza Strip into Israel?

  13. Thursday Open Trackbacks

    Send me your best stuff!


  14. Get over it Braylon

    Miami took Ronnie Brown from Auburn with the #2 pick. Edwards says he don't carry a grudge but feels he was lied to.

  18. NAACP chief makes switch to GOP

    This had to be a difficult decision for Mr. Wallace. The treatment of Lt. Gov. Steele in Maryland can't be encouraging. His move makes perfect sense.

  19. The Facts About WSIS

    The understanding of the digital divide as a multi–faceted phenomenon is not found in the WSIS documents. The importance of cultural diversity and capacity building in general for the "Information Society" are mentioned, but the framing of the digit...

  26. Just Say No to General Zod

    General Zod is running for President in 2008. But let me ask you one thing? Do you want a crackhead running our country?


    We've all seen the blogosphere band together to help the needy... Here's one more worthy cause, offered up by The Conservative Cat. Please help this man: Conservative Cat has a plan... Show-America and the world!-how much you care. Linked at TMH's ...

  28. Bush 34, Dems 25

    What five years of whining by the left has caused is more than a third of the nation to just give up on everyone. If the election were held tomorrow, Bush's 34% beats the Dems 25%.

  30. Popping Skulls

    "Crushing dissent" is one of the nonsensical catch-phrases the angry left slings around rather freely these days when discussing the Bush administration. Attempting rational conversation with anyone who says such things is a rather futile pursuit and...

  31. Abraham Lincoln Bush

    The Democratic Party crossed a line today for which there is no turning back. They have gone from being the Loyal Opposition to the Party of Appeasement. The Surrender Iraq movement propped up the alleged hawk John Murtha and had him deliver the tearfu...

    So, we now come back to the present and calls from the Left to abandon ship, tuck tail and run, and to give up on the endeavor in Iraq and the Middle East. Hogwash...
