Blogroll Update

Elendil pointed out in comments that the sidebar link to my dissertation is broken -- I never changed it from the Utah page. So it's fixed, and while I was at it I decided to clear out some dormant links and add in a few new ones. Including Elendil's own Rummy's Diaries, as described in the previous post. (The blogs I deleted are mostly ones that haven't posted at all in 2006.)

Incidentally, an explanation of the snark in the previous title: The reason I called it the "War on Whatever" instead of the "War on Terror" is that it's clear that many of the victims of our human rights abuses have nothing whatever to do with terrorism. And the Bush Administration has made it pretty clear that they would want the power to do whatever the hell they want to whether or not terrorism was a problem, and that fighting actual terrorism is not so much a priority. Hence, snark, as ineffective as it is.

Thanks! As soon as I do my next update, I'll add you to my thank you blog-roll list.

I agree with you on the "War on Whatever". I'm hoping that some time in the future, "Global War on Terror" will have a quaint kind of ironic feel, like "duck and cover".
