Hello! My name is Nicki and I am your guide for this week’s edition of the Alabama Bloggers Carnival. I must ask that you please keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times. We have a great lineup, so if everyone’s ready, let’s jump right in and get this ride going!
Up here on the right, we have my own submission covering Barack Obama’s recent visit to our fair state:
“I would be interested in hearing real answers to key issues rather than the tired rhetoric thatâ€™s currently posted to his website. Donâ€™t tell me what you think I want to hear, tell me what you actually PLAN to do about the problems in this country…”
I dunno ’bout y’all, but I haven’t heard anything yet!
We are now coming up on Alabama Improper, who has recently joined Blog-A-Thon 2007, putting her talents (and blog) to work for a very good cause!
“Please consider sponsoring me and donate a lump sum amount to the charity of my choice which is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I donâ€™t see any of the money and neither does Blogathon. We ask that you donate directly to the charityâ€™s donation page.
Also, if you would like and have the time, please help promote this event too. Send some people my way to donate/pledge. I greatly appreciate it.”
A great cause, indeed! Won’t you help her out? :smile:
Coming up to your left, you’ll see 7.62mm Justice who is covering another recent celebrity visit to Alabama, Ms. “Peace Mother” Cindy Sheehan. He ends this very well-constructive entry with the following reflection:
“This isnâ€™t a simple operation, this is war. Things are complex in war. The enemy is doing everything it can to win. We must do everything we can to succeed. Lives depend on it.”
Our next stop, Scott Allan’s World with a humorous post about an “ex” who went to bat for the other team:
“I wasnâ€™t sure what to think at first. Then I thought about it, and I realized, how many guys can say they were with a lesbian? Thereâ€™s one item I got to check off my list that I never thought would happen.”
Too funny, Scott. Thanks for sharing! :mrgreen:
Last but certainly not least for this tour, we have Degree of Madness with her post about President Bush and his recent meeting with journalists outlining his case for winning the war:
warBush noise coming from Congress is getting tiresome. President Bush has been criticized for not making a stronger case for the surge. It’s time for him to step up and fight the ‘Surrender Lobby'”
Personally, I’m all for telling the “Surrenderists” exactly what they can do with their “plans.” But then again, maybe it’s a good thing I’m not President! ;)
It’s been a pleasure hosting this week’s edition of the Alabama Bloggers Carnival. I hope you all had a great time and will come back again. Don’t forget to send in your submissions for next week’s edition (I don’t know who is hosting yet).
