Every Friday I point you to some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. Ben Casnocha has a terrific analysis of what makes for a great interview. I couldn’t believe the Noam Chomsky interview he highlighted. Wow.

2. I adored this history of “the heckle” in the British House of Commons over at The Guardian. Bring back pecksniffian, I say! (And Joe Wilson, take note!)

3. I also really enjoyed Annabelle Gurwitch’s take on Al Gore’s J-Date Profile at The Huffington Post. I think it’s OK to start making Al Gore jokes again.

4. Writers will be inspired by this post at Beyond The Margins by Leslie Greffenius about what makes you a writer. (Teaser: there’s a reference to Madeleine L’Engle!)

5. I’m always bowled over by people who decide to follow their bliss at any age. So I was super-chuffed (speaking of Britishisms) to see that the mother of one of my childhood friends – Mary Ellen Murphy – has recently started a blog about reading. (This is in addition to her regular facebook postings about Russell Crowe.) Mary, what can I say? I salute you. Please, everybody, do swing by and visit Mary’s blog:  Reading.

6. Finally, for those who are interested in the BP debacle, I’m over on www.PoliticsDaily.com today talking about how President Obama’s whole “ass-kicking thing” is playing over in the U.K.

As ever, please do follow me on Twitter.

    The AK reference by Pres. O? I wonder if it were British beaches & multi-million Pound businesses being destroyed & hard-working Brit fisherpeople & water-dependent workers being deprived of work & income by a US oil driller. . .well, you get the picture.
