Best of the Local Blogs — 2/10/06

CDADave/Thin Air claims he couldn’t help himself when he saw this Quick Fix 6 photo from Thursday. For the rest of his blog today, click here.

*Colleague Ben Shors sends an SOS from Africa, urging HBO to post a link to his travelogue (complete with Muslim unrest re: cartoons, exotic women in skimpy bathing suits and shark-filled waters), the the boss will continue paying him to surf here.

*Mari Meehan/Dogwalk Musings continues to believe that American newspapers, including The Spokesman-Review, have imposed self-censorship by not publishing the controversial Muhammed cartoons and are shirking their obligation to educate and stir debate here.

*Jim Meehan/Idaho Vandals (no relation to Mari) tells you the latest about Dennis Erickson’s 2006 staff and asks Erickson if he’s in the running for the Oakland Raiders head job here.

*Bearable Bob explains why blogs are so dang hard to write and endure (spam, blog trolls, threats, angry commenters, etc. … I feel his pain … and I’m not kidding) and so dang hard to leave, after breaking away for a few days here.

*JBelle/The ‘Kan EWA Notes explains how a gal born on CDA’s Pennsylvania Avenue can be so in love with New York here.

*Yesterday, radio legend John Rook, who lives in the CdA area, reminisced about ‘50s rocker Eddie Cochran. If you enjoyed that, you’ll enjoy the chapter about Cochran from Big John’s online book, “Passing Thru,” here.

Also: Cis spotlights a blog she enjoys here, Marianne’s on the road again here, Sam’s having second thoughts about scientology here, and Digital Fog grants Grammy winner Kanye West’s wish to be in the Bible here.
