- The Cook Shack: Gab & Grub — my pal Cookie’s site, you’re always guaranteed to learn something there.
- Benning’s Writing Pad — I ran across Benning’s site a while back, looking for blogrolls for my new hobby site. His posts are well-written and today’s is no exception. This post has a plethora of information for anyone who would like to learn more about the history of the events leading up to and the day of the attacks.
- Michelle Malkin — she always has lots of pictures and other useful information.
- The Bull Speaks! — a local blogger who has a very well-written blog
- Hillbilly White Trash — another great blog coming out of the South.
