The Best of Behind These Links

It is five years today, since my blogging began on March 29, 2005.  BTL began over 450 posts ago on 2/6/09.  Thanks again to my regular contributors – Jon, Betmo, Dan’l and Diane – for reading and linking to such valuable and interesting material.  I appreciate their sharing of links so much more than I could ever adequately recognize.

I finish this series with a set of links that will remain lasting and useful: “The Best of Behind these Links,” Because I want a change of direction in order to devote more time to writing longer and more creative posts, I will no longer be active here at Behind these Links.


Here is where you can find me:  My news and political blog is at South by Southwest. My general purpose/southwest focus blog is at Southwest Progressive. And Carol Gee – Online Universe is the all-in-one home page for my websites. 


Special bonus links from previous posts:

  • The Sarah Palin Digest#,” is from Think Progress. To quote: “ThinkProgress has put together a document compiling what we know about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) vice presidential running mate.
  • How Progressive are you?#” Take the poll that the Center for American Progress employed to gauge the political leanings of our nation, (3/11/09).


For reference:

  • The Ten Worst Nightmares Bush Inflicted on America#,” is from AlterNet  December 22, 2009. Author Juan Cole of Informed Comment’s summary: “Here are my picks for the top ten worst things about the wretched period, which will continue to follow us until citizens stand up to fix them.” Jon adds, “Lets not forget the mess lil’ bush left. We need to be reminded every so often.”
  • Surveillance Self-Defense~,” is a web site created by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)to educate the American public about the law and technology of government surveillance in the United States. Diane explains, “Interesting and very enlightening articles on this website.”
  • GO TO THE ARCHIVE: Search all back-issues of TIME since 1923#,” for TIME’s unique perspective on history, people, and the most important events of the day.


Recommended blogs:

  • Five Thirty Eight~, according to Diane, “is an extremely helpful and interesting website.”
