The Virginia Blog Carnival
Welcome to this weekâ€™s edition of the Virginia Blog Carnivalâ€”NOVA TownHall last hosted the VBC in early May and weâ€™re honored to do so again. Iâ€™d be remiss if I didnâ€™t thank Kat for taking the helm in regards to managing the Carnival on behalf of all of the Commonwealthâ€™s bloggers!
We had few submissions this week (probably due to the fact that weâ€™re now in the midst of the lazy days of Augustâ€¦ or maybe it was that crazy school-tax holiday?) so there isnâ€™t much to post. For those unfamiliar with the VBC, here is a description:
â€œEach Monday, a Virginia blogger will host a Virginia Blog Carnival, offering just a sample of the topics Virginia bloggers have been writing about during the week. We hope everyoneâ€™s curiosity will be piqued to read more of the selected posts, thereby giving more exposure to each participating bloggerâ€™s site.â€
Now on with the Carnivalâ€¦
- Jason Kenney over at Jâ€™s Notes discusses the use and efficacy of MySpace as a campaign tool.
- David over at Equality Loudoun has a post discussing the civility of the Virginia Marriage Amendment debate in relation to a purported lack of condemnation of a recent act of vandalism in a Loudoun community (which appears to be motivated by the victimsâ€™ sexual lifestyle).
- Roci over at Rocinanteâ€™s Burdens discusses the federal minimum wage and the Democratâ€™s recent effort to block legislation that would have raised it.
- Leslie Carbone has an eloquent post where she discusses a high and ideal vision for America toward which public policy should be directed.
- Spank that Donkey discusses whether or not bloggers are journalists and as such require some form of editorial control. He then goes on to introduce his blogâ€™s illustrious new â€œEditorial Board.â€
- Rick Sincere has some great commentary on the overly-complicated sales-tax holiday this past weekend.
- Waldo Jaquith digs into the stats behind the 17 times the federal government has raised the minimum wage.
- NickFinity over at Jefferson Mammoth discusses whether or not soaring obesity is a government problem.
- Norm over at One Mans Trash discusses the moderately entertaining YouTube spiff of Al Goreâ€™s sensationalist film â€œAn Inconvenient Truth.â€
- Riley over at Virginia Virtucon discusses the addition of Casey Kasem to the XM lineup (the official satellite radio of his blog).
- Virginia Centrist discusses the Washington Redskins, predicting a 12-4 season.
