Blerg Friends

Here are two new additions to my blurgroll:

Snoburbia, about the dreadful suburbs of Washington, D.C. Snoburbia also produces t-shirts for the member of the overclass and/or person satirizing the overclass in your life.

Setty's Notebook, from an American journalist in Venezuela.

Also, Jewbonics was already in the blurmrull, but I've been remiss in not recommending every post, particularly his recent writing from Gaza.

Sad news from Gaza and Impunity of IDF has become so routine, I wonder if anyone notices it or thinks about it anymore!
News from Bi'lin ( after five years of non-violent protests ) is not encouraging either ( in terms of reduction in IDF violence against the demonstrators ) but the protesters will never give up their non-violent fight. And some people have the gall to ask "Where is Palestinian Gandhi or Mandela? They are dead or in jail if they care to know.
Following is what happened on Friday the 23rd of April, 2010.

Hi Jon S.,
the name "Jewbonics" reminds me of the late semitism blog. Do you know anything about the current doings of its proprietor?
