Blogroll updates

I have a lot of blogs linked in the sidebars of this site, and I actually do make an effort to keep the lists up-to-date. That means deleting dead blogs, but it also means adding exciting new ones.

First of all, to my conservative readers, I highly recommend checking out some of the liberal blogs under the "Rival Racers" heading in the right-hand sidebar.

I agree that reading 'the opposition' is hugely important. Especially the best of that group.

If your ideas can't stand the arguments against them, you need to refine your ideas.
