On Fridays, I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:
1. This news item is a bit out of date now, but for all you who took delight – or umbrage – at the revelation that some GOP congressmen went skinny-dipping in the Sea of Galilee last summer whilst on a fact-finding trip to Israel, I encourage you to read Cord Jefferson’s take over on Gawker, appropriately entitled Let My People Get Drunk and Swim Naked In The Ocean.
2. This is riveting: a first-hand account – via Twitter – of what it’s like to sit next to an unruly passenger on an airplane. What’s amazing is how the author manages to make you, as a reader, actually feel nervous as the suspense builds.
3. I loved Cecilia’s honest take over on the Only You blog about how the death of a colleague – and breaking her leg – made her rethink that most fundamental issue in parenting: control.
4. If you’d like a laugh, check out Mitt Romney’s new video blog, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Have a great weekend!
