My New Favorite BloggerMichael Totten has a great weblog. He seems to be fighting the same fight I'm currently thrashing around with: that of a liberal who's constantly ashamed of the actions and philosophies of the far left-wing, and bewildered and bemused by the actions of the far-right. He recently posted an examination of the differences between conservatives and liberals entitled "Builders and Defenders", which has gotten a lot of blogplay. Read it, and read as many of the followups and commentaries as you can. It's a great start to what I feel could be a fascinating and fruitful discussion.
Thanks to Donald Sensing of One Hand Clapping for bringing him to my attention.
