Jewish Carnival

Filed under: — Different River @ 9:51 pm

The latest edition of Havel Havelim is up at Shiloh Musings.

There is a weekly carnival of Jewish and Judaism-related posts; the name is Hebrew phrase that is usually translated as “vanity of vanites,” the repeated phrase in the Book of Ecclesiates (Hebrew: Kohelet) — especially in Chapter 1. And it is, of course, a play on the name of the original “Carnival of Vanities”, started over three (!!!) years ago.

The latest edition should answer Adam’s request for a “Carnival of Channukah.”

There’s got to be a word for this…

Filed under: — Different River @ 6:22 pm

“This,” being: taking an occassional glance at the Carnival of Cordite (gun-related blog posts) and discovering a nice (apparently) Orthodox Jewish blogging couple who like to shoot.

That is, Leah Guildenstern, whose husband Jack just signed on as a co-blogger.

Not surprisingly, one of the links on their blogroll is to the blog of the special-forces-turned-Orthodox-Rabbi “Rabbi Rambo,” that is, Rabbi Lazer Brody. As if to bring things full circle, Rabbi Brody links to this post on the modern-day implications of Hannuka by Steven Plaut, to whom Rabbi Brody says he has just been introduced. Believe it or not, I actually had dinner with Steven Plaut once, at a now-defunct kosher Thai restaurant in Skokie, Illinois. Where, Leah Guildenstern would presumably be disappointed to discover, it is very difficult to legally own a gun.

Until today, I had never heard of anyone mentioned above except Steve Plaut — and the proprietor of the Carnival of Cordite, Gullyborg. Who, it just so happens, is getting married today! Congratulations!

So much for this “six degrees of separation” stuff. Try three.

Leah also links to this article about Robert Aumann, who co-won this year’s Nobel Prize in Economics, who applies economic analysis to thinks like war and gun control. Nice.

I’ve been remiss lately in posting links to “blog carnivals,” including some -but-not-all of which link here. Mea culpa! To find good stuff to read, consider these:

  • Carnival of Healing — articles about wellness and health.
  • Carnival of the Clueless — “where bloggers highlight the stupidity of various loons, goons, poltroons, dirty necked galoots and the odd idiotarian whose behavior marks them for entry into the blog slaughterhouse.”
  • Carnival Of Liberty — “blogging and thinking about liberty and freedom.”
  • Carnival Of Classiness — “a weekly roundup of 15 blog posts deemed classy by the carnival organizer. The criteria for submissions: incisive original analysis, quirky topics nobody else is covering, fantastic graphics, or other posts that took a lot of work.”
  • Virginia Blog Carnival – articles about Virginia, and by bloggers in Virginia.
  • Grand Rounds (last week, and today) Medical and health-related articles, now promoted by Medscape.
  • Carnival of the Capitalists — posts on economics, business, regulation, etc.

Carnival of the Liberated

Filed under: — Different River @ 1:20 pm

The Carnival of the Liberated is a round-up of blogs from Iraq (and now Afghanistan also!). It’s written by Dave Schuler but hosted by Dean Esmay.

There are blogs about everything

Filed under: — Different River @ 1:12 pm

Dennis Prager used to (and may still) say that TV news presents “a proctologist’s view of America.”

He was speaking metaphotically. If you’d like a more literal view of a proctologist’s view, here’s a blog that’s all about colonoscopies.

I hope this blog never becomes that specialized….

Today’s linkfests

Filed under: — Different River @ 8:08 pm

For more reading, check out this week’s Carnival of the Capitalists, and last weekend’s (but the most recent; I’m just slow in linking) Carnival of Cordite, which contains a link to this story about a police chief in Massachusetts who is OK leaving women defenseless against domestic violence and forcing security guards into unemployment, but is really tough when it comes to prosecuting people who lose rented videos. (OK, so I took some poetic licencse with that, but if you read that post, you may be surprised by how little I took!)

UPDATE (3/7/05 9:08pm):

Oh yes, I can’t believe I forgot this one: Arthur Chrenkoff’s Good News from Afghanistan from the past month. This is not a blog round-up, but a news round-up, and it published in OpinionJournal.com, which is of course related to the Wall Street Journal. (I have no idea if this appears in the print version as well.) Arthur, of course, has his blog here.

UPDATE (3/8/05 1:20am):

Grand Rounds 24, the weekly round-up of medical and health care blogs, is here.
