Ed. Note: MNP was experiencing some technical difficulties on Monday, Nov. 30th. Our apologies.
Happy belated Thanksgiving! And for those of you who weren’t giving thanks for Europeans’ fairly ruthless conquering of the Americas this past week – happy Monday! AMNP is back after a week-long hiatus.
To really kick off your week, I advise you to go watch this video of interviews with people waiting in line for a Sarah Palin book signing [note to Palin fans: feel free to never visit AMNP again - I won't be offended]. Now, I don’t really mean to be insulting here, so all I’ll say is that it’s reminiscent of the Katie Couric interview – everyone in line loves Sarah, but nobody knows anything about her policies or political goals/agendas/whatever. She has apparently won them all over by being so spunky and mavericky.
Moving on to more relevant [I hope] things – here is AMNP’s weekly selection of archi-blogosphere linkage. As always, if you see anything on the web that you believe should be linked-to from AMNP [as part of Ninjas on the 'Net,? the news sidebar, or as a full post] feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy your week!
