This weekend, I point you to some worthwhile reading around the blogosphere:

1. Dueling interpretations of that childhood classic, The Wizard of Oz, at Slate and DoubleX.

2. I’m very taken with a new (to me) blog called A Boat Against The Current, a self-described “cultural omni-blog” examining literature, history, theatre and the arts. I was particularly enticed by this entry about the day Fiddler On The Roof opened in New York City twenty-five years ago. Because, really. What’s a day without humming If I Were A Rich Man?

3. This is one of the most amazing videos I’ve ever seen. Nuff’ said. (Via: Very Short List).

4. For sheer audacity and willingness to put herself out there (as well as some very useful career advice along the way), I highly recommend Penelope Trunk’s Brazen Careerist blog. This post will make your jaw drop. As will this one.

5. Finally, my thoughts on the unfolding crisis in Honduras over at PoliticsDaily.com.

    Apart from the US throwing up its hands, muttering “a plague on both your houses”,what on earth is to be done? Our record of intervention in Latin American affairs would make James Monroe weep and we always seem to base what can hardly be called “policies” on a mix of ignorance and misguided self-interest.

    Delia,

    Many thanks for the kind words on my blog. I don’t expect that you’ll always share my opinions, but I’m sure going to try keep you reading constantly.

    The “Fiddler” link was one of my favorite to write. Several people (including yourself) reacted positively to it.

    I, too, find myself humming “If I Were a Rich Man”–though obviously not because of the current state of my 401K plan, or from blogging!

    I’ll have to read the “Wizard of Oz” posts you mention. Below is my post about the New York premiere of the film–an event in and of itself:

    Best wishes,

    Mike T.
