Here is this week’s list of blog posts, message board threads, videos and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
Ode to Bella Santorum. I avoid politics – especially U.S. politics – as much as humanly possible but this bears repeating.
Sheep Herding Swedish Bunny Hops to Fame. This is one of the cutest, funniest things I’ve ever seen.
From a discussion on Letter From Former Slave to Former Master:
Mandy says she would be afraid to go back without some proof that you were disposed to treat us justly and kindly; and we have concluded to test your sincerity by asking you to send us our wages for the time we served you…At twenty-five dollars a month for me, and two dollars a week for Mandy, our earnings would amount to eleven thousand six hundred and eighty dollars.
Hobo Life in America. There’s a story in every wrinkle, every scar.
Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old only by deserting their ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul.

Once again I haven’t read anything worth recommending this week. What have you been reading?
