Hezbollah Wants Your Money

I'm cheered by the news that Hezbollah has begun talking to the International Monetary Fund. Hezbollah's coalition might win next month's parliamentary elections in Lebanon. And if it does, it doesn't want the aid shut off. So its leaders are reaching out to the international community early. That, of course, will tie Hezbollah more tightly to the international community. Which is, in the long run, a step toward getting them to set down their guns. The existence of McDonald's does not, as some have thought, prevent war. But the presence of aid at least gives the international community a bit of leverage.

I noticed that you no longer have Pandagon on the blogroll since the move.

I think distancing yourself from the wacko blogsites is a wise move. The difference in the way you reported the "feminism has made women less happy" and the way Pandagon reported it is stark and shows the serious differences you have with the shrill and unthinking knee-jerk reacting, drooling extreme and hateful left.
