Presidential Historians Hammer Unnamed African Countries. Blogosphere Reacts.

There is a new collaborative effort (we'll see how it evolves or devolves) to get 15 presidential historians to blog on current events. Of them, I've read stuff by Stanley Kutler (Nixon) and Alonzo Hamby (Truman). I've seen Allan Lichtman on C-Span quite a bit.

I'm in the midst of watching the Hammer House of Horror series of British TV shows (OK, programmes). They're awesome! Reflections upon completion.

How's your geography? Can you tell your Zambias from your Zimbabwes? If so, try the Sheppard Software Geography Games. They have vocabulary and trivia games too. I like these because you have to drag an outline of a given country to its proper palce on the map, with no lines and sometimes no names given.

Parts 4 & 5 of the State of the Blogosphere, August 2005. This shows all the posts so far on one page.

Update 11:00 AM, 8/13/05: This formerly untitled post is now an object lesson in the importance of proper punctuation.
