HBO’s Best of the Friends’ Blogs — 1/5/07

Tom Von Alten/Fort Boise isn’t too happy with the practices of UPS/Fed-Ex of simply dropping packages at his door steps and taking off (above) — nor with big raises that Boise State coaches are about to pocket here.

*Oh no, Idawa/Word Forge has hit the blogging wall; he sez he’s going on a blog diet this year (read: posting longer piece mebbe once or twice a month) here. Ed Note: HBO’ll allow this, Idawa, as long as you continue to comment here.

*Brent Andrews/Synaptic Disunion has two words for his readers who are sick and tired of picking up dog poop: BARF (Bones And Raw Food) Diet here.

*Frank Sennett/Hard 7 opines that “Spokane’s proposed red-light cameras are a terrible idea and the City Council needs to put the brakes on before picking the pockets of drivers with this backdoor tax of dubious merit” here.

*Bearable Bob explains how he comes up with his creative ideas that leave his commenters/blurkers begging for more here.

*In an eloquent post, Toad/Synaptic Disunion explains why he doesn’t want to live in a world where men have to brave razor wire to stay alive here.

*Karl/Leaning Straight Up isn’t surprised that anti-gun activists are using the Tacoma high school shooting to lobby for gun control. He expected it, as he targets the “Gun Show Loophole Myth” here.

*Hindu/Sagebrush believes the “hanging video” will help Iraqis put Saddam behind them and get on with their struggle for sovereignty here.
