What can I say? I bore easily: meaning that I am not going to persist with Poignant Posts, at least not on a regular basis. I pretty well stick to my regular links, so, to a large extent, the same writers would keep being recycled.
Having said that, I haven't yet mentioned Lynn at State Street who can be a very cerebral blogger. To say the least, Lynn is not a great fan of the present administration, and he writes some of his reflections in Questions of character and political philosophy and Iran: the Conservatives' Recalcitrant Child. He also writes a more personal, non-political essay in A Slight Recollection of Poverty.
I think you'll enjoy Actual Unretouched Photo's entry: All Whine. No Cheese and Just Another Day's, Saturday Soapbox, and although I've previously mentioned Heather at Fumbling for Words, please read her Polarization essay of January 12. There's something going on with her blog, and I can't seem to link to Polarization directly, so please scroll to January 12. It's worth it; this piece is going to be published in the Globe and Mail which dubs itself as Canada's National newspaper. Quite a feather in the cap. Way to go Heather!
