As you may know the members of the Watcher’s Council each nominate one of his or her own posts and one non-Council post for consideration by the whole Council. The complete list of this week’s Council nominations is here.
The Colossus of Rhodey, “Chávez Suspected of Foul Play”
Hube considers Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez’s record as a democrat.
Wolf Howling, “A Methane Gas Emission in Church…”
GW takes note of the advancement of the socialist agenda at the IPCC conference in Bali last week.
The Glittering Eye, “The Changing Face of America”
In my submission for this week I muse on the history of change in the United States.
The Education Wonks, “U.S. Students Not Comparing Well With Others”
EdWonk is not at all happy with the response of the Secretary of the Department of Education to the news that American middle school students haven’t fared well by OECD standards on math and science tests. My take: make it worthwhile to them and they’ll do better. There isn’t much future in science in the U. S. other than the practice of medicine and we only graduate 13,000 doctors a year.
Done With Mirrors, “I Bet Not”
Callimachus doesn’t see the humor in the citizens of Trondheim, Norway being charged $148,000 for pre-paid parking spaces.
Rhymes With Right, “Whatever Happened To Separation of Mosque and State?”
Greg wonders why there’s so much tolerance for state schools spending to support the religious practices of their Muslim students.
Bookworm comments on a California history teacher’s using his class as a platform to lecture against religion.
Soccer Dad, “Fish Tales at the PA Aid Conference”
Soccer Dad critiques the goings-on at the recent conference on aid for the Palestinian Authority.
Cheat Seeking Missiles, “Separation of Church and State, Secularist Style”
Laer reports on the story that Bookworm ran with (he seems to have been the one to bring it to Bookworm’s attention).
Big Lizards, “”The Courage to Do Nothing””
Dafydd ab Hugh takes note of the follies of the IPCC.
Freedom Fighter speculates on the nature of the deal-cutting going on the Middle East.
Right Wing Nut House, “The Very Deep Thoughts of Mike Huckabee”
Rick Moran isn’t impressed with Mike Huckabee’s ideas on U. S. foreign policy.
Well, I’ve decided which posts I’ll vote for this week. Which posts would get your votes?
