Florida Cracker links to a new site run by Vietnam veterans opposed to the Democrat frontrunner: “This site is not against the Democrats, it is against John Kerry, it does not look at any other issue other than his military service, the anti-war movement and how he has dealt with Vietnam's Human Rights. If Kerry was running as a Republican or Independent, this site would still exist in opposition.”

• One of the finest comments threads ever spawned at this site will soon vanish to the archives. Include your story now, or ... don’t.

• Added to the blogroll, after months of pointless delay, is New York’s excellent Spartacus. Also Wonkette. (And ABC Watch.)

• Ask the CPA! Roger Bournival offers useful tax advice for US readers.

• The WogBlogger, who tends to post brilliantly or not at all, is in one of her brilliant phases.

• Mahmood offers a sociological analysis of Bahrain by vehicle type. Turns out the Camry Estate is the favoured transport of religious persons/mullahs/imams.

• The fourth installment of US Marine Brian Taylor’s war journal -- and the most compelling yet -- is now up at Opinion Journal. Earlier installments may be found here.

Mike Jericho is back blogging after a couple of weeks off. Take his scary poll.

• Where is Margo? Vikki McNaughton, like the whole semi-English speaking world, wonders.

• Type “Mark Latham” into Google and this site appears first. Well done, Flippy!

• Flee Canberra! Tex has news of an impending disaster.

Thanks for the blogroll link, Tim. The deposit to your numbered Swiss bank account we discussed should go through in the next few days...

Your pal, Spart.

[OT admin stuff] I fixed the link to the Florida Cracker blog. I have no idea what the weird character "9ef" is supposed to represent -- are you using some weird Mac computer to blog, Tim? ;)

Wogblogger's a female?

I didn't know that. I do enjoy the site.
