Linkblogging for 29/04/09

I’ve been too tired to blog properly for a couple of days – the migraine mentioned in the last post was actually a symptom of me coming down with some minor infection – not bad enough to keep me from going to work, but bad enough that I’m too tired to concentrate. Getting a bit better though so hopefully normal blogging will resume tomorrow (and I *might* have some big news – though I might not. Either way, my usual netcast *will* be up tomorrow at Liberal Conspiracy). In the meantime, here’s some links:

The people who used to be at Seebelow, the livejournal community, have started a group comics blog by the same name. It’s got some of my favourite writers involved, including the welcome return to blogging of Matt Rossi, ex of the Howling Curmudgeons and Once I Noticed I Was On Fire…

Roasted Peanuts is also worth a look, going through (nearly) every Peanuts strip from the beginning in order and analysing Schulz’s changing style.

Andy at Wouldn’t It Be Scarier? has strong views on the government’s recent plans to allow faith schools to apply their ‘values’ to sex education. I’m not keen on his last paragraph, which assumes it’s the responsibility of all religious people to constantly distance themselves from those who supposedly share their faith but who hate gay people, but I agree with the thrust of his point.

Brad Hicks is not keen on the newspapers.

And Alison Goldworthy points out how Labour is failing the people who used to be its core supporters.

Those wanting to get involved in the ‘newniverse’ project I spoke about a few days ago, by the way, I’m taking next week off work and one of the things I’m going to do is get that sorted properly.

    I don’t think it’s their responsibility to do so, but I do want to use any leverage I have over those people to make them do so. Because it irritates me when moderate religious people spend all their time telling me I’m being “militant”, but almost no time seriously taking on the people who attach their deity’s name to views they profoundly disagree with, and if I can make them do so through fear that otherwise people might listen to atheists, then I have done a good thing (I think).

    Just like to make a quick correction Andrew, Ali didn’t write ‘Labour’s love lost’… I did, she posted it under her name for me…..
