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